Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts, 61, delivered another one of her powerful morning messages on Instagram, live from her studio dressing room, reminding her followers to align themselves with positive people.
The inspirational guru, with her actively-listening “Glam fam” in tow, discusses the “law of the group,” which means “we associate with people the way we see ourselves.”
“Have you noticed how gossips find other people who like to gossip?” New York-based. Roberts questions. “Negative people tend to gravitate toward other negative people, because birds of a feather flock together.”
“Make sure you are flocking to the right group,” the breast cancer survivor advises. “Victorious people associate with other victorious people. Successful people find other people who are successful. Eagles soar with other eagles.”

“If you let go of the other people, God will bring the right people into your life,” she adds, before going into her morning prayer, asking that God separate herself from others who are dragging her down.
A Survivor’s Advice is Very Important for Getting Through Cancer
“We look forward to the people You bring into our lives to inspire us to be our best,” the religious news host concludes, addressing Jesus, her savior, then addressing her fans, “We want you to have a blessed day, and be a blessing.”
Robin Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 after discovering a lump. Ironically, she made this discovery while prepping for a news segment on performing self-checks, which shows just how important they are to perform at home.

“At first I thought, ‘This can’t be. I am a young, healthy woman,’” Roberts said, which tends to echo through many women’s heads following a diagnosis.
Coincidentally, now that Roberts is on the other end of her journey, her longtime partner Amber Laign, 47, has since been diagnosed and is still going through the treatment process.
Roberts has stepped up to the role as caregiver, and has admittedly been having a tough time, but as with anything difficult in life, you fight to get through it.

The journalist’s early detection of her own cancer was a critical factor in her survival. Roberts treated her breast cancer with surgery, one of several treatment options for this disease, which can also be treated with radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy.
In addition to battling breast cancer, Roberts had  MDS, which stands for myelodysplastic syndrome—a rare type of blood cancer where abnormal cells form in the body’s bone marrow.  Roberts had to undergo a bone marrow transplant.
What is Myelodysplastic Syndrome MDS?
Chemotherapy for breast cancer could have likely contributed to Roberts’ secondary cancer. Although it is rare, it is one of the risks of treatment. MDS caused by cancer treatment is called “secondary MDS” or “treatment-related MDS.”
Although risks and complications can happen with treatment, many patients feel that is is highly better than the alternative—and that the benefits outweigh potential side effect and future outcomes. So, while treatment may feel like your ultimate foe while going through it, just keep reminding yourself that there is light at the end of the tunnel, it is most likely only a temporary situation, and never give up hope.
