Can I look at myself in the mirror?

I think that should be a question that should we ask, if we are pressured do something that we aren't comfortable with. In life, friends come, friends go, but the one person that you have to answer with day in and day out and the one person who is most impacted by your decisions, is you.

Yes that's right. If a person wants to change, he can say to himself 'go ahead and do it cuz life just happens once'. By the end of the day, it'll still be you making most of your decisions in life.

Absolutely, we are in control of our lives. We have to answer to ourselves and not what is popular in the end. As long as we are comfortable with the fact its our own decision, then its good.

Many times people do things they aren't supposed to do, say things they aren't supposed to say, act in ways totally unexpected of them. The reasons are varied, but pressure is definitely one of them. The act comes first, the conscience catches up with them later.

Yes and the worst thing is, it slowly eats away at us the entire time. Eventually it gets to the point we can't really ignore our conscience. Thank you for your response. It is much appreciated and it contributed to the topic well. Have a nice day and thanks.
