The mental distress caused by one person to another of equal standing is known as peer pressure If youve seen any after school specials youd know what Im talking about Peer pressure takes plenty of persistence and securance You must be persistent about your idea or no one will listen And you must be secure enough not to lose your position or idea As children we faced pressure from our peers all the time We were tempted to steal lie and cheat Even in adulthood these pressures still exist Others love to persuade your mind and get them on your bandwagon Whether the question is buying a house or a new pair of shoes someone always has an opinion Even though most peer pressure is bad some of it can be useful I found this out my junior year of high school One of my close friends urged me to donate blood to the Red Cross It seems harmless to ask someone to contribute to charity but I wasnt comfortable with this situation For example when someone starts to talk blood and guts I have to leave the room or else I get light-headed and nauseous So I wasnt sure if I could handle giving blood Although my friend knew this she still badgered me to do it She wanted to it not only because it was kind but who ever donated blood would be let out of school early Yet knowing the statistics on blood donation also helped persuade my mind I found out that every 3 seconds a person needs blood And 95 of people living to age 72 will need a transfusion but only 5 of people donate blood Had it not been for my friend I wouldnt have paid attention to these facts Therefore I decided to or at least tried to donate bloodI was extremely nervous when the day came to give blood nevertheless I tried not to show it
