Peer Pressure | People-Pleasing | The Fear of Man
Why do you buy the clothes you buy? How much time do you spend in front of the mirror? Have you ever exaggerated to make yourself look better to others? Are you scared of being rejected or ridiculed? Is making the winning goal and being the hero of the game a fantasy? Do you ever receive praise and feel like an imposter, who isn’t worthy? Finally…are you experiencing social anxiety, feeling peer pressure, and frustrated trying to please people?
Wendy Wood designed this course to help teenagers and adults get to the heart of why they feel social anxiety, anger, fear, or sadness at the way others respond to them. Trying to please people wears us out; however, God calls us to love Him with our whole hearts. A divided heart that loves the praise and acceptance of other people does not honor God. You can understand your heart and see why living to please God is the best way to live and the way to combat social anxiety!
Intended for teenagers and young adults experiencing peer pressure, this course includes video lessons, interactive activities, reading, and thinking. For teenagers, we encourage parents to go through the material with them, encouraging them and discussing the content. This one-on-one is important. We provide a teen-only group, a parent-only group, and an adult-only group on the Lemon Grove Social platform, where you can connect with others who are like-minded and struggle with trying to please other people. Social learning can bring accountability and more encouragement.
