In this video Dr Sadaqat Ali speaks about Social Pressure. Dr Sadaqat Ali is a renowned addiction psychiatrist and project director of Willing Ways Pakistan 

Social pressure is often a powerful force because when several people show disapproval towards something we do, we automatically assume they are right and we are wrong, since we are alone and they are many .Our minds tend to operate on the principle that the majority is always correct. It’s easiest to become uprooted when you’re filled with insecurities about yourself. So to be comfortable with whom you are, you just need to take the time to understand what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and to have reasons for yourselves, though you are not obliged to explain anything to anybody else. Be very careful about actions and behaviors and choices, making sure you are just not following the group by using your conscious brain. If you depend upon the opinions of others to determine how good you are, then you become like a leaf in the wind, fluttering in whichever direction the fads of the time blow you. Don’t base your career choice, lifestyle or even leisure time solely on what gives you status. If you want to be great, then do something great. Not because it will earn you respect in the eyes of others, but because you want to live a meaningful life and fulfill your potential regardless of the attention it will draw.
