  1. Ahhh, social pressure. It’s a tough nut to crack. I feel you on this one… I quite hate social pressure. But I also hate letting people down. It’s hard.

    Thank you for the insight.

    As I learned it, pushing people into social interactions tends to fall under a) blind pattern following, e.g. when you don’t get what you want bargain for it, or b) good peer pressure (like the kind that is used to help people to church) rather than the bad peer pressure ( like the kind that starts the smoking and drinking down by the 7/11 ). Their hearts may be in the right place. They simply lack enough knowledge to understand that they are not helping.

    I like the solution you found; A reasonable cadre.
