    Social pressure

    I know you've all noticed how most people do things just because everyone else is doing it. How they seem to like the same things, the music, the clothes, hairstyles, TV shows, almost everything. We all know that can't be because every person is different. I know that with younger people it's called fad or fashion, and i understand that. But it's not only the younger people anymore, these days it's mostly everyone. Do you do things you don't like just because everybody is doing it?

    I believe in peer pressure but, for me i do what the fuck i want to, and don't just give a fuck.. I do me. Now.. few years ago, and yes I did things as a fad to fit in.

    It happens only if you give them a leverage over you.I never really care for those as those will only bog you down and never let you brim with confidence.They are always waiting to pull your pants down.
    Also,never care attitude won't help always..i sometimes take the pressure and make sure they get insult and never speak ill of me or challenge me again..Well i don't know if i made sense,but that is how i approach it...!!

    Be your own person and don't let anyone ever force you into being someone that you are not. Peer pressure happens at all ages but it probably is at its worst up until you hit thirty.

    I hate social and peer pressure. Especially when the majority of people like a certain thing and you feel you need to do it. Fortunately i haven't been affected by it and i do what i feel is right for me.

    I think that we act as we are we are happier persons than if we fake it, so forget social pressure, just be yourself.

    Seems like the mainstream media is force feeding people things to follow. Some people are easily influenced and will follow along others will genuinely gravitate towards something they like not by what others do but because they want to themselves. Idk what the fuck I'm talking about. lol

    Yeah everybody is pretty much programed. They don't realize they're programed and brainwashed so that these people can make money. They turn you into a zombie so they can make more money. Im nothing like the rest of society though.

    Nope. If there is something I don't like, i'm not going to do it. Waste of time, and what is the point in doing something if i'm not having fun?

    No, I can't be bothered swimming along with the stream. I have my own little side streams and have been happily paddling around in them for most of my life. To be honest, I find it hard having a stimulating conversation with people who are too much under the peer group pressure thumb. But I don't judge them, or anybody for that matter. Life is hard enough, and we all do our best.

    I never do things I don't like to follow the crowd. I like to call the shots in my life and do what makes me happy, regardless if it is the "cool" thing to do or not.
