Dealing With Peer Pressure

In our efforts to get acceptance and respect in our social groups, fitting in can become a priority. We feel a desperate need to do what everyone else is doing. Peer pressure can drive us towards things we are not prepared for, leaving us anxious and struggling. No matter how famous it makes us, let us not succumb to it. Remind yourself daily - I am an independent being. I am free from peer pressure. I choose how to live my life beautifully. I set healthy boundaries in relationships and live by my choices. I remain unaffected by peer pressure. This will help you boost your self-esteem, honor your choices and establish clear social boundaries. You will overcome the urge to follow people around you.

Have you been under different kinds of pressures from people, to do something you were not comfortable with? Had you yielded to their influence at some point, out of fear, helplessness or to feel accepted? How much has peer pressure affected you? Our family and friends have different perspectives and choices. They do certain things which we are not comfortable doing. No matter how tempting it is to follow them, saying no to peer pressure is our choice. This life is our journey, to be lived as per our choices. If we are always concerned about what people think about us, our self-esteem drops drastically. Let’s not comply with peer groups by compromising on our capacity, values or principles. We have the ability to decide for ourselves. Let us respect ourselves and not depend on others to feel accepted. Listen to your inner voice, respond based on your physical strength, emotional stamina, values, affordability, commitments and capacity. Choose your habits and lifestyle and do only what is healthy and soul strengthening. Your family and friends will support you. Even someone does not approve of your choices or opinions, accept your differences with them and radiate respect to them.

Message for the day 01-05-2021
-----------------------------------------

To be a judge of the self means to be free from judging others.

Projection: The one who becomes the judge of the self and not that of others, is free from criticising others unnecessarily. Such a person also does not plead his own case by giving excuses and proving himself right. So he is able to bring about a positive change in himself and others are able to take inspiration from the change that he brings in his own life.

Solution: When I am free from giving excuses and reasons for things going wrong, specially to myself, I am able to experience progress in my life. For everything that happens, instead of blaming others I am able to take some new learning and use it for my own self-progress. I am able to remain light because I have no expectations from others, but am able to bring about a change in them through my actions.
