Here is your short paragraph on Peer Pressure !
Peer pressure is said to be a situation where a person (or a group of individuals) try to encourage other person (usually of their age) to do things that they wouldn’t do or try to alter their mind set, behavior, values or attitude towards something.
Peer pressure plays a major role behind dragging teenagers to get started on smoking, alcohol & drugs. If you try to escape from such habits you are considered as an outsider & un-cool by the people of your age.
Your wish to get fit into the system leads you to take alcohol and drugs. Peer pressure can make you sad, guilty, anxious, and disappointed or pushover. The best way to overcome the situation is to deal people tactfully in your own unique way so that your decisions don’t make them feel bad.
Every coin has 2 sides. Similarly peer pressure should not always be taken in a negative manner because Peers help us to socialize. Many a times it may have a positive impact over the lives of many people. This is because your friends can influence you to do things that will improve your social life & health & make you feel good about the things you do.
All you need to do is take your time & think for a while if you are pushed to do something by someone & avoid doing things that are bad & you don’t want to do. Your friends can use peer pressure to make you a good human beings.
