P-Pressure

P

Pressure is one of those words with so many different meanings and results. For instance there is good pressure and bad pressure. These pressures can be from ourselves, others or really anything at all. I think the most important thing in life is to see where the pressure is coming from and whether it is good or bad. Then eliminate the negative pressures in our life. Yes, this is easier said than done but it is worth a go.
