You can never raise someone's thoughts to yours if you keep lowering down your own thoughts.

I read it somewhere that you will become like that You're The Average Of The Five People You Spend The Most Time With.

I witnessed this and that it is true. When we talk about relationships, we are extremely influenced — whether we like it or not — by those closest to us. Mostly, It affects our way of thinking, our dignity, and our determination.

Everyone is their own person, but sometimes get influced by the people who matters to them. But the people who love you the most will expect the most of you. They always want to see you become the best version of yourself. They may once in a while hold you to a higher standard than you hold yourself. Yet, they don't hold you to that standard since they're being judgemental, in any event not in a way that is negative. They hold you to that standard since they see something in you that you don't yet observe. Or, then again perhaps they see something in you that you see however aren't yet following up on.

So Never, ever, ever lower down your standards.

With regards to relationships, we all have our own standards. On a very basic level, they are the standards that we hold dearest to our souls.
Our standards are depends upon our philosophies.

You never want to step down to someone’s lower standards. A standard is an ideal, something that we reach for and aspire to. And if our basic standards are lessened because we are afraid to hold them up, then the relationship will suffer for lack of principle and lack of depth. It will feel empty.

Fortunately, we can bring out a higher standard from our companion. When we hold our standard up, they get the chance to venture up to it — or venture out of it. Try not to give anybody a chance to stem your soul or your higher knowing. By holding to your higher standard, everybody will be better for it. When we hold to our principles we are really offering our companion a chance to develop. By increasing current standards in a relationship, we as a whole develop. By bringing down our models, we are diminished.
