The older we get the more we get tp make for ourselfs. Some are right and others are wrong and others are serious moral decisions.
As kids parents decided on who to be friends with and what to wear and as you become more in depended, you start making those decision for your self and your friends start to play a big part in your life. You develop close friendship with some of your friends, that peers can have a good influence on us by being there when you need them and always feeling your best when your around them. But sometimes depending on who your friends are, they can be a bad influence leading you into a trouble life.
Fanshawe college student Daria shares her story saying , “back in Russia I had a best friend and she used to smoke all the time and would tell me that if I wanted to be cool I would ave to smokers well”. After giving in into per pressure she then later found the straight and stoped smoking.
People feel the pressure to conform with their friends so they will fit In and feel accepted by others. Expecially when they are unsure on what to do at a social situation so they look to others for cues on what acceptable or not.
Making decision on is hard enough, but when people get involve and peer pressure you one way or an other it can be and even harder choice. Just remember that we all have the power to say no and to think for yourself. you feel so connected to them that they feel like your some how related.
