Peer Pressure

Being in middle school lets you meet new people and find new friends. However, just because you’ve found a few people with the same interests as you, does not mean that these people will be your best buds for the rest of your life. Remember that things can change. There are some shady characters out there who will try to get you to do anything they want. This is what we call PEER PRESSURE.

You may be thinking, “Yeah right. As if I would give in that easily.” It sounds harder than you think to just say “No."  This pressure can be crushing, so be strong and stay confident with your decision. Think about yourself and what you know is best for you. Don’t worry. You’ll get through it and find others who are willing to accept you for who you are and the decisions you make.
