               Peer Pressure
                             
               Peer pressure is detrimental to our
               well being and self-esteem. Many times, we
               will do so many things because others are
               doing it but not because we agree with these
               things. And this can really make us feel bad
               over time. 
               
               Here are a few tips to alleviate peer
               pressure so that you can assert who you truly
               are.
               
               1.  Don’t allow anyone to tell you what you
               should do, especially if you don’t agree with
               the action.
              
               2.  Always do things that make you feel
               good about yourself but not something that
               others will agree with.
              
               3.  Never allow others views about you to
               hamper how you feel about yourself.
              
               4.  Never cling to a point of view just to
               belong, especially if you don’t agree with that
               point of view.
              
               5.  Choose your friends wisely, and try not
               to befriend kids who are pushy. True friends
               will allow you to be yourself with them. 
               
               By following these tips you could assert
               who you are and avoid the pressure to
               conform with a group’s values.
