First, we are encouraged to act right, to excel in school and to get a job, all while dealing with the pressures of bullies, alcohol, tobacco, sex & drugs. Then there is pressure to find a husband and if you are still single by (insert age here), the questions start coming: “Why are you still single!? Is there something wrong with you!?” If you are in a serious relationship and you’ve past the X-month/year mark, you get the: “Where’s the ring!? When is the wedding!?” Let’s not forget the newlyweds the day after the wedding: “When is the baby coming!? You’re not getting any younger. Your clock is ticking!”
Heard it all before!!!…whether it was directed at me or someone close to me and to that I say: Keep your comments & questions to yourself! Your may have good intentions and you may mean well but it’s just not fair to the other person. You don’t know their journey, what they’ve been through or what they’re dealing with so it’s best to just keep it on mute.
No one needs that type of pressure in life.
So…for all those dealing with THE PRESSURE (moi included!), don’t be
too concerned with what others think or say. Just let go and let God! Doing this will bring you true happiness!
