Hol Up! I know what you’re thinking, peer pressure can be positive?
Well, this is me telling you not to take it from me, but from the world’s most trusted article engine aka Wikipedia. According to this guy and I quote, “Peer pressure is the direct influence on people by peers, or the effect on an individual who gets encouraged to follow their peers by changing their attitudes, values or behaviors to conform to those of the influencing group or individual. This can result in either a positive or a negative effect or both.”
Now that we’ve established from a reliable source – the website you wrote most of your assignments from aka Wikipedia – that peer pressure can be positive and healthy, let’s move on to the how. How can peer pressure be positive and healthy?
Well, dearest reader, the answer is right here, you probably already even know it… YOUR FRIENDS! The people who form your peer group. That’s kinda obvious sha.
I’m about to stop typing, so FOCUS real hard on the last words i’ll leave on this page. You can and will experience positive and even healthy peer pressure when you deliberately surround yourself with mentally, emotionally, intellectually and every other ‘ally’ healthy people. I’m talking about goal-oriented, driven people with ‘healthy’ worldviews. Kind people, people with their heads screwed on right, if you know what I’m saying.
Well, there you have it. I hope this doesn’t sound like some aspire to perspire high. The way to experience positive and healthy peer pressure is by surrounding yourself with positive and healthy people.
Okay, these are my last words, I promise.
