Do you think you handle pressure well, or do you usually fall apart?
I have to wonder what kind of pressure the person who put this question was thinking of? Is it in work, trying to meet a deadline, is it financial, is it emotional?
I am comfortable to say that I can handle work pressure well. Like many people these days, I am feeling the financial pinch and often end up struggling to keep up with bills – so far I’ve been keeping my head above water (barely). Now, I do worry about this, but I don’t let it get me down. As long as I have kibble for the beasties and an internet connection, I’ll survive. Is that handling pressure, or coping with it?
Emotional pressure – hmmm. If you’re sad, I’ll try to cheer you up. If you need help, I’ll put my hand out. Need a hug? I’m there. But for God’s sake, don’t whine, and keep your perspective! Otherwise, see that trail of dust heading for the nearest hills? I made that.
