Parental pressure, peer pressure, and self-pressure, are all types of pressure that we often experience as young adults. There are times when we are pressured to do things we don’t agree with. sometimes these things end up positivity, and sometimes they end up up horribly. Pressure can come from many angles ans is at many times, hard to deal with.
Parental pressure in my opinion, is a more positive factor of pressure. By this I mean that many parents pressure you to do better because they want what’s best for you. Parental pressure usually consists of what college to attend,or who and when to date. parents are also known for pressuring you to practice good morals and values. Once again, they usually want what’s best for you!
Another type of pressure young adults experience is peer pressure. Peer peressure can occur at school,in your neighborhood/community, extracurricular social groups, etc. So many young adults feel pressured to interact in disturbing behaviors in order to prove themselves to other peers. Many are pressured to engage in behaviors such as sex,drugs/alcohol,fighting,disrupting classes, skipping school,stealing, gang affiliation, etc. I can ramble on for pages about behaviors displayed due to peer pressure.
My advice for these situations is to focus on what you know is right for yourself. You cant make the world happy. You must be satisfied with yourself and to do things that make you unhappy.
A quote to remember, “I’d rather fall with intentions of being a leader, instead of knowing that I followed someone else.”
