In today’s world, it can be difficult to navigate the onslaught of brokenness, cancel culture, groupthink, negativity, and inauthenticity that are constantly vying for our attention.
How are you supposed to know who to listen to? Who should you trust and surround yourself with?
My response to this is, look for the truth-seekers.
Find the people who are willing to dig deep into a topic, hear out both sides of an argument, ask tough questions, and examine their own beliefs.

Find people who strive to stay informed and educated on a variety of topics and who make decisions based on facts rather than feelings or hearsay.
Look for people who are not afraid to be themselves, and who stand up for what they believe in even when it means they stand alone.
Surrounding yourself with truth-seekers will help encourage you to remain open-minded in your own pursuit of knowledge, without compromising your integrity or values.
In times like this, where the truth can often seem blurred or misrepresented, seeking out those who prioritize truth is more important than ever before.
There’s an old saying that goes, tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.
Filling your life with truth-seekers is a choice that will help you become more resilient against the oppressive forces of cancel culture and groupthink, while also rising up to shine brightly in a world full of darkness.
Are there truth-seekers in your life?
Think of the people you know who fall into that category. How do you feel when you’re around them?
Think of some ways you can cultivate relationships that lift you up and encourage you to be your best self, and write them down.
Like everything else in life, relationships require intention and attention. How can you build on that today?
