Social Pressure and Teens

The one thing pressures have in common is that they exist because of outside forces and expectations conflicting with internal ones. If people accepted you for who you were, it would be easier to be a lesbian, or have a boyfriend of a different religion, or race. Pressure results when we worry what other people think of us. We also experience pressure because of life circumstances and demands beyond our control.
