The right to free association is a constitutional right.
I can associate or hang around with anyone I want. No one can tell me who my friends or business partners can or cannot be.
I have the responsibility to choose the people
that I hang around with wisely.
If I choose people who are bad for me or who are dishonest,
then they can hurt or take advantage of me.
I need to ask for help to get people out of my life
that I don't feel have my best interest at heart.
