Loving Yourself and Pressure

People tend to want to pressure you into things. They tell you it’s okay, or that whatever they want you to do is safe. They will promise you that they won’t tell anybody or spread it around, but they are lying. They lack the respect for themselves and others and feel that it is okay to pressure somebody to do something that they don’t want to do. Please don’t let them pressure you. You may be feeling terrible at the moment, but it will get better. You have to learn to love yourself and believe in your own judgment because when it comes to your safety, there’s no such thing as being a “baby.”
