    Yes, it’s true Pam, and I’ve known a few of them. If you were a regular or sub-par performer like myself growing up, watching your peers ‘blow’ their potential wasn’t actually something I would have noticed at the moment it was happening, because to my peers, I might have been seen as the one who was ‘blowing’ it. Seeing it play out among children when I’d become an adult was much easier to spot. But all my railing and pleas were mostly ignored. I really do think the influence of peer pressure is so great, it smothers out nearly every other incoming impulse. It was in my case. Being fearful of one’s parents only makes you want to be away from them as soon as you’re able.

      You are nowhere near being ‘sub’ anything! You are bright, articulate and compassionate. That puts you miles above so many people on this earth. I do agree with you about peer pressure. I succumbed more than I should have but less than I could have.
