Peer pressure is mental slavery.

“At any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone dilute you. Don’t be peer pressured into being less than you are. People willing to dilute themselves for the sake of others is one of the great tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set the pace for your life. Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will be.”
― Steve Maraboli

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

I’ve always wanted to study abroad for the experience. And I figured, my parents didn’t throw in that kind of money for me just to come back unchanged. I’ve become just a little more fearless in life, to new experiences and meeting new people. I want to make the most of my year here in UK because it only comes once.

So sue me for wanting to experience life, grow and learn.
