Peer Group Pressure
Why is it we all need to feel like we belong? What happens when no one wants you in those groups? I say without pride I never belonged to those groups. I was the one no one picked. I was the band freak before it was popular. I was the preppy before it was cool. So now when I see ads for websites like the newest over 50 years one at http://www.eons.com/, I have a lot of consumer resistence. These clowns didn't want me before. Why should I bother with them now? In all honesty, however, I owe those popular kids a huge debt. They made my life as a free thinker possible. If I had been sucked into the popularity vortex, I would not be who I am today.
