    Fun thread but also makes us self introspect:)

    There are some things which we will do or did due to peer pressure be it to be included in the group,or passive competition or maybe obvious competitive spirit.Some do it to not be left alone,some for status whatever reason is...

    So if we think about it..what are some of the things you might have done or do which you really don’t want to or care about?

    Let me begin with me..

    1)I don’t like sarees.Wear it to please my mom.

    2) I hate wearing jeans or even western wear On my trip to India but do it coz my friends group out there are status conscious and they have this idea just coz am from abroad,I HAVE to be mordern.

    3) Don’t really care about brands but have lot of branded stuff.Infact,normal brands are more beautiful sometimes with variety.

    4) I respect god but do not really care about functions or festivals.Just do it for family.

    5) I hate potlucks.

    6)I like only Indian movies now and rarely do I watch English movies but I do it just for the heck of it

    7)I don’t like to watch any sports but try to learn a bit just to keep up





    Some of the things I could think of:)

    I'm not a very social person. Big gatherings are frightening to me, however, I have to attend some weddings and functions of the relatives, distant relatives, friends and acquaintances so that I don't come across as a snob.

    I don't like sarees. But wear it when going to weddings in India.
    I respect God. But my husband is very religious. So we go as a family to temples all weekends to please him.
    As a mom of a special needs child, I have learnt a lot of patience and do lots of stuff to please her.
    Mostly I have done stuff to please my family. Dont care much about society :banana:

    1. Few mentions here about saree. Actually I love wearing saree. But I live abroad and here if I wear saree people might think I am old fashioned. Same in my India visits also. Its been 2 years since I wore a saree.:triumph:
    2. I dont care about what I wear at home. But nowadays being cautious about home clothes. Sometimes I iron them. :BangHead:
    3. I have no problems attending family gatherings or functions in India. But I hate attending friends' parties, meetings or birthday parties here abroad. I am an introvert and always feel uncomfortable in any gathering. But had to do just for the sake.

    So many introverts here. I am also an introvert and I hate socializing mainly because - 1. I get judged. 2. I have to be a yes woman and pretend to go along with the crowd. 3. I am the type who looks for strong friendships. Unfortunately, I have realized that 1 always happens, you have to do 2 sometimes and 3 is just not there.
