Yes, other people do try to put pressure on you, but we then put the real pressure on ourselves.

We all need to chill at times!!

i think the stress is a realy bad problem because most of the people dont now how handle. In mi opinion one way to avoid stress is looking somthing you really like as a sport even the simple relation whit friend one day a week is enough . If you work all the week and you dont relax yourself one day, doing everiting you like, you are gone to have serious problems. So forget your job, your school, even you wife for one whole day. tk for read this bye. :twisted:

I have a something to say in this subject. Firs of all, we must acknowledge that the stress is in our life and this will be all time.It is important that we must overcome from this problem. We must be patient,we must struggle with it,and we must not give up the idea of struggling.Also we must trust on God.Because God guides us everytime..

Sure. I think nowadays there is a expectation of the people to be "happy". The people are meant to have a good job, money, a good car, a beautiful house, and many other things. I think because of this the people are getting more and more stressed.

I do agree! As the development of mordern society, people are very busy these days. They work hard ,they want to get more money ,they want to improve their living standard. They also face harsh competition from their colleagues and the society. Some pressue also from their children and parents.So sometimes they may feel stress, Then they should speak it out to some friends. If it don,t help,they should consult the doctors!

of course it is the global problem!we all want to live comfortable and we dont want to be worse than the others. needs are bigger than 50 years ago. today teenagers have so high requirements, that many parents cant handle it. the only way to get money is to get a job. so there is very common that young people are working. for them stressful life begins too early. plus pressure at school which is so big, that sometimes children have a healthy issues before they become adults! so yes, stress is a huge problem!and we should do something before it would grow over us.

In my point of view, stress becomes a global epidemic once we are accostumed to grow it. We are easily putted under stress by external event, but we can mostly suffering from stress by ourselves' thoughts especially for those who are used to have bad ones.

Of course it`s a major problem worldwide.But in my country it`s worse than anywhere.Because there are less job opportunities for everybody due to bad economic situation of my country and corruption so the competition for getting a job is fierce so young people are pushed into stressful situations They think without job there is no money ,without money there is no happy future. : :-( }:

As we are living in a modern world, we have been placed in entangled doldrums wondering how to get disentangled.
