Do you find yourself giving in to prompts and urges from your peers? And does this lead performing some things or engaging? If your answer is yes, then you’re a slave. And this, however popular you are made by it has got to stop.
Peer pressure can affect you in many ways. At first, they may pressure you to do little things that don’t have any effect. However, the more you become enslaved by it, the more energy people have more than you, and the more subliminal hypnosis the effects of this can be.
So before you end up doing something you are sure to repent, you should do something to get out from under the spell of your peers. And the good news is, positive affirmations will help make this change easy for you.
1. Evaluate your circle of friends. Taking after the people we spend time with is a reaction in ourselves. It’s in our nature. Each person sends off vibrations that form from her or his ideas, feelings and mood, and our subconscious minds somehow eaten up these vibrations. This is why we are very vulnerable to peer pressure, and sometimes even without knowing it.
Therefore, if you spend a whole lot of time with people who have negative beliefs and habits, you become a servant to habits subconsciously and these beliefs. The first thing you have to do is to evaluate whether you are currently spending time with those who have a healthy effect on your mind. If not, then it would be best for you to think about whether your circle of friends has to be changed. If you spend some time with individuals who have habits that are positive those are the habits your subconscious will get used to.
2. Exert your independence. When they are just going with the flow, some people feel secure and comfortable. This is what happens when the person is fearful of not belonging to some group or isn’t confident enough to be his own person. So if you don’t want to become a slave to peer pressure you have to:
• Get rid of negative thoughts about yourself such as self doubt
• Believe in your ability to make decisions that are wise for yourself
Give your self confidence a boost

I am capable of making my own conclusions.
I am independent.
I am confident about myself.
I make wise decisions for myself.
I choose my own activities.
Once your subconscious believes in these messages, it will begin working towards making them a reality since it won’t tolerate any discrepancy between its beliefs and what’s real. You can so free yourself and make yourself in making your own decisions.
