How to handle Peer Pressure

Friends are always fun to have around. But there are times when they force you to do something which makes you fall prey to peer pressure. You can’t escape it but you can still handle it.

One pressure that every individual in college or school life undergoes is to excel in studies. Every school and university life puts pressure on an individual to compare themselves to the other members in their group. Even if you don’t like it, comparison is the only thing that tags you on how much you are favored or how famous you are in your group or class with respect to academics or any other activities. Sometimes these things lead to other problems like isolation, inferiority complex as well as bullying among friends. And if you are the targeted one, there is no way of escaping it.

Teenage – The Child Adult

Teenage – We have all been there. The quintessential period of our life where we are expected to take decisions like adults and be obedient like kids. It’s strange and obnoxious to expect a person to live a dual life and expect that the person will like all the aspects about it. Think about it. You are offered a gun and then they will tell you not to use it even for self defense. Would that make any sense at all? Teenage is very similar to this.
