My dear Sister and brother take a stand, don’t crack under peer pressure
Confronted with a choice, you may stand up to this pressure or let the dark cloud of ignorance overpower you. We often find ourselves in situations like this, where standing out seems ridiculous.
It’s natural fo…r people to want to be liked and accepted by the people that matter to them. Yet in the end, remember that each one of us is individually responsible for the successes and failures in this life, and when your peers pressure you to do or accept something that’s not right and goes against your values, you should stay firm and stand up to the pressure.
