Having your own social circle helps build your self-esteem from the feeling of belonging to a group that shares the same interests. Only a few people don’t go well with a squad. No matter how big or small your group may be, it’s still a whole lot better than going through everything alone. However, it’s not that easy to build your own clique or join an already established one, especially if you are the Introvert type of person. You need to be capable of adapting and conforming to the group’s interests and activities. You also have to be ready to develop some social influence over your peers to make things more interesting for you.
Before you can do this, you need to understand how social influence plays a vital role in your life and those around you. Most of the younger generation today is under some sort of influence – From peers, parents, family, school, work or even celebrities. Just by watching television, you can easily adopt to the new trends that are currently being used or practiced by the majority. Although there are some practices that are not that good to follow, there are also a lot that are beneficial to the society. What matters is that you know which trend to follow and which trend to ignore.
