How many people are in your inner circle? The very close people whom you trust and admire. How many? People tend to allow many people in their circles. They confuse acquaintances and colleagues with friends and friends with close friends. It is a social mess. They let me down. They disappointed me. They caused me trouble.
The number of people in your inner circle determines the quality of your character. Choose the size of your inner circle carefully, slowly and thoughtfully. It is not about the quantity, it is about the quality.
