Because they are showen some bad things as good, and at the same time are showen things that are not bad for you, as bad for you. And everybody wants or needs attention, so no matter if what they do is good or bad the attention is what they want or need. You just dont want to do anything bad to get the attention that you want or need.The best thing for you is to be around people that do good thing your type of good.

We ALL want to be liked. When we are young we have impressionable minds still developing, that is why these years you are in school so that your developing mind can be taught some basics. Also during these years the young can be more easily influenced by outside forces whether good or bad. Now add human curiosity, raging hormones, and bad choices and you can get a dangerous combination of emotions and thoughts surging through your body causing mass confusion and resulting in pressure to make a decision often times surrounded by outspoken and demanding classmates.

Culture almost demands that we conform to it and it takes a strong reslove not to participate in their games and that's why so many buckle to fit in and then pay the price. Being an individual should be applauded instead of running with the pack off a cliff. I am so thankful i was a loner and that i was willing to fight against any bullying that came my way. I know it's not socially acceptable to say it these days but YES there are times you have to and need to fight.

When you get older your mind is not as impressionable or developing and you could care less what others think about you anymore. So hang in there.
