Peer Pressure

by Aansalaraib


PEER PRESSURE AILING MANY SOULS!!!

Peers are meant to help you out in your difficulties , support you in your runs but these days peers are more known for competitiveness.

Every other person is in search of the way that how can they pull your leg off and leave you behind. They are more concerned with other's failure rather their own success and progress.

Many of the students face this problem on daily basis , they try to come up but are suppressed with sweet pills . Discouragement , rejection and dejection doom their self confidence. Inspite of encouraging their fellows people want them to lack behind and get all of the credit themselves .

It is very important to learn that we do not need to conform to other's expectations and advises. Usually it becomes way more difficult and challenging to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else ; peer pressure is contributing in this challenge .

As every coin has two sides so does a story and peer pressure can also be positive . When a child or a student accompanies a group of peers who are talking about being productive and self grooming together , this will surely invoke the child to do the same .

Thus changing the concept of peer pressure is a two way process ; it cannot be forcefully ejected rather solemn opposition would work . Remember if you say YES to others make sure you are not saying NO to yourself.

BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN SKIN WITH YOUR OWN SKILLS , STAND OUT IN CROWD AND FACE THE PRESSURE WITH A BRIGHT SMILE ......

You know, I feel like peer pressure gets a bad rap a lot of the time. When I was in high school, I fell into a small group of friends who were all smart, bookish, Advanced Placement kids. Because of those kids; I started reading more, I signed up for AP classes, and I started thinking more critically. I was coming from a fairly uneducated family (no had ever stepped foot onto a college campus) and I wasn't self-motivated enough to do those things on my own so I'm fairly certain that if it wasn't for those friends, I would have truly not become the person I am now today. So, all in all, I think it's about who you surround yourself with. If you just always surround yourself with people who have traits that you admire and that you want, then you'll be influenced in a good way and those good traits will rub off on you. On the other hand, if you surround yourself with people who don't necessarily have admirable attributes, then they will rub off on you as well.

Thanks for listening to my two-cents, lol!

Hello hello! Welcome to the site! Here to bring this out of the green room for you! :)

PEER PRESSURE AILING MANY SOULS!!!

Add in "Is" before "Ailing".

Peers are meant to help you out in your difficulties , support you in your runs but these days peers are more known for competitiveness.

Every other person is in search of the way that how can they pull your leg off and leave you behind. They are more concerned with other's failure rather their own success and progress.

I think these two ideas could be one paragraph because you're talking about very similar things - what peers should be doing versus what reality looks like.
I'm also confused by what "support you in your runs" and "...in search of the way that how can they pull your leg off and leave you behind" mean. I'm not sure if there are typos in there or just cultural differences :)

Many of the students face this problem on daily basis , they try to come up but are suppressed with sweet pills . Discouragement , rejection and dejection doom their self confidence. Inspite of encouraging their fellows people want them to lack behind and get all of the credit themselves .

"sweet pills"? What sweet pills?
This is all very true, but to me this sounds more like bullying rather than peer pressure. What are the peers trying to get the other person to do? Give up?

peer pressure is contributing in this challenge .

I agree, but how is peer pressure contributing to the challenge?

I think you make a lot of good points in this article, but several of the points could be expanded upon to make it flow a little better and sound more cohesive. I think it would be good to spell out exactly what peer pressure is, examples of peer pressure (and examples of what it isn't, so there's no confusion with your readers if they're new to the subject), the negative effects of peer pressure, when peer pressure can be good, and then how to overcome peer pressure. You mention all of those things somewhere in the article, but I think each point could have a few paragraphs on it and be very clearly spelled out.

I hope you stick around the site and keep sharing your work! Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like feedback about something I didn't mention! :D

WOW! This is one inspiring article. I felt motivated by reading this. There were raw truths said here.

Many of the students face this problem on daily basis , they try to come up but are suppressed with sweet pills . Discouragement , rejection and dejection doom their self confidence. Inspite of encouraging their fellows people want them to lack behind and get all of the credit themselves .

This so true. Yes, most students do face all the above.

As every coin has two sides so does a story and peer pressure can also be positive . When a child or a student accompanies a group of peers who are talking about being productive and self grooming together , this will surely invoke the child to do the same .

True that! Amazing advice. Thanks for sharing your work here.

Remember if you say YES to others make sure you are not saying NO to yourself.
Nailed it! Yes, one should learn to say NO. The failure is when one tries to satisfy everyone.

BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN SKIN WITH YOUR OWN SKILLS , STAND OUT IN CROWD AND FACE THE PRESSURE WITH A BRIGHT SMILE ......


This is what I exactly needed. Thank you! And I totally agree to this.
This is an inspiring piece! Enjoyed the read.
Looking forward to more of your works.

Kind regards,
Sree.
