Peer Pressure

 Have you ever been pressured into something you think you shouldn’t do?

Or, have you ever thought that you should do something you haven’t done because everyone else is doing it?

Stop and think for a second about what you are going to do, whether you are allowed to do it, or if you are doing it to just ‘fit in’!!!

Have you ever been in a situation like this?

It could cover anything, smoking, sex, bunking off school, bullying somebody, damaging something, ANYTHING!?!

If you have, what did you do?

Do you think you made the right decision?

Did you regret it?

Do you have any advice for people who could of been or are in your situation?!

My advice is to not do anything you don’t think you should be doing, especially if it is to please other people.
You shouldn’t have to do something to be apart of a friendship group, friends should just form naturally.
Just remember to always think about what you do, before you do it!

Perhaps your friends are still pushing you, you don’t want to, but can’t find your voice?  Well, students at Tring Martial Arts learn all about finding their voice, through the practice of self defence they learn to stand on their own two feet and not be swayed or pushed into anything they don’t want to do.  If you want to find your voice, contact Chris or Paula on 0845 094 8805 or see our website www.tringmartialarts.com
