Proverbs 22:5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
Froward means perverse, turning from, with aversion or reluctance; not willing to yield or comply with what is required; unyielding; ungovernable; refractory; disobedient; peevish; as a froward child.
So the wicked that do not want to obey God and refuse to yield to Him have a rough way to go. The person that wants to take care of his soul will stay away from such as that.
Be careful to seek out influence of people that want to serve God, that want to know and do His will.
