Say ‘NO’ To Peer Pressure!

Peer pressure

 

Hello, Friends!

Welcome to the Land of Friends that is not that a simple world to live in! In fact, believe it or not, you have just set foot into the Land of Foes unknowingly!

Most of us have dependability when it comes to befriending people. In fact, we get so lost in this dependence that we, sometimes, completely forget who we really are. We feel that if we do not follow the crowd, then we might have to lose the company of the people around whom our lives were centered once. In fact, we start feeling lonely and neglected once we try to showcase our thoughts and opinions, yet, get turned down despite our uniqueness.

This darker phase of life that all of us go through at least once in our lives in nothing but Peer Pressure.

Peer Pressure is one of the worst things that can attack a person’s individuality. It not only kills the opportunity of showcasing our skills and potential but, it also makes us do many things against our own will.

Say for an example, your friends have taken to smoking and the consumption of alcohol at the age of 15 and they ask you to do the same. Though you might not approve of their doings, you will be compelled to follow their footsteps out of compulsion. And, suppose you do pick up all the courage that you possess and say ‘NO’ to their wrongdoings, you will be tagged as a ‘LOSER’. You can associate with this feeling, right?

Well, to be honest, Peer Pressure is such a psychological state of mind that can be lost and won by the victim himself or herself. People can guide you for sure. However, you have to pick up the courage to repeatedly say ‘NO’ when your friend circle asks you to take part in activities that are against the basic morality or your individuality.

 

  • Find Peace in Loneliness

Losing your friends can be heartbreaking. However, you have to learn to rediscover your old self in the absence of your so-called friends. Find peace at heart by indulging in those things that make you feel happy rather than by getting depressed by brooding over the harsh jeering.

 

Gone with the wind

 


 

  • Express Yourself

A lot of problems can be solved if you only use thoughts and execute them into actions. Be vocal and expressive. The people who indulge in wrong-doings will always try to bring you down both mentally and physically. However, you have to be confident and face them.

 

Express Yourself


 

  • Believe in Yourself

You are unique and special. You may have talents that you have never dared to explore and flourish. However, you are one of a kind and you have to believe in yourself so that you emerge victoriously and make your well-wishers proud one day.

 

Believe in yourself

 

Well, Peer Pressure is a negative aspect of life. However, it has its own positivity because it helps the victim to filter out real friends from the fake ones. Also, it helps the victim to rediscover himself or herself anew and, thus, work towards fulfilling the long lost dream.
