Peer pressure is real and many people have finally gotten the realization that trying to please others has become deadly. In pursuit of becoming like others or stepping up to society’s demands, many have lost their lives and self-esteem and have become a shadow of themselves.
Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has taken some minutes off her schedules to reach out to her followers on the dangers of society pressures amidst advising them to take life one at a time. In the video she posted on her Instagram page, the actress entreated everyone to be content with their lives and not to desire what others have.
She mentioned that one should or must be grateful for what they have at each point in time and that always comparing one’s life to others isn’t healthy. She disclosed that she was without car for a long time and even though she had that inner voice who always reminded her of not having an own car, she was always quick to tell herself she’s better off than many people driving in cars.
She added that anytime she compares her then and now, she feels grateful for the little she owns and that she knows the future has just begun. Watch the video below.
