Evidence: KLV does something new and fun because her other 3-4 year old friends are doing it. She doesn’t want to be left out of the fun so she forces herself to let go of her fears. This is a good thing.
Peer pressure among adult friends can also be good. Watching friends go after their dreams, watching them get fit, witnessing their transformation into a wise calm being – these are all examples of seemingly positive peer pressures.
But does this behavior make us conformists? Do we do these things to be like everyone else or does their behavior simply inspires us?
With that, I’ll leave you with this quote from John Allston, “If you don't control your mind, someone else will.”
