There certainly is a #prettygirl application to “You can’t sit with us!”
Your circle influences your business, whether it is by action or by association. While I’m not one to pay too much attention to the latter, I am unbelievably protective over my energy and the role that the people closest to me play in maintaining a positive space in which to manifest my best work. There are some people who are unable or unwilling to curb their negativity for your benefit (or their own!). I’m sure there are those that probably can’t help themselves, and that’s fine. It’s just not for me.
