Do you still feel pressure of conform? If no, what age did it stop?
I stopped feeling the pressure to conform when I got married. So, I guess age 21 was when I stopped feeling that pressure. Before I got married I thought I was supposed to get a house by a certain age, get a steady job and climb the corporate ladder, own a particular wardrobe, carry specific handbags, etc... When I got married I realized that STUFF doesn't matter to me. Experiences are what matters to me. I want to visit Europe, drive cross country to California, be a traveling writer & photographer, etc... I no longer worry about name brands and expensive stuff like I used to.
