Peer pressure is the constant pressure from society to fit in. At times what an individual desires and what society wants can be completely opposite. This can be very overwhelming for the person.

Hence it is crucial that we learn to manage peer and societal pressure early on in life.

It's also important to remember that we don't put pressure on other people in our life to conform to societal expectations. It's really important to support individual decisions that don't harm anyone, but are different from mainstream ones.
