You Can Say No

Peer pressure has caused many people to do things they didn’t want to do. It’s when you feel you have to do something to please the crowd or become part of the group. You want to say no but you believe you will not be liked or you won’t be part of the group if you it. No one can make your body move or make you agree to something if you don’t want to. If friends or people try to get you to do something and deep down in the pit your stomach you feel bad, just say no. Believe it or not, it’s ok to say no. Your life will not end because you said no. The world will not hate you because you said no. You will not lose all of your friends because you said no. and if they did, then they were not your friends anyway. Real friends don’t make you do things that you don’t want to do. You and only you are responsible for your body and actions. You have total control over what you do, and if it’s something you don’t want to do, saying no is the best thing for you. Now remember to say to yourself, I can say no.
