My life has been full of pressure. I have done whatever others tell me to do, and I always lived according to other people's expectations, and those expectations, are usually high.
I have always thought of giving up on these pressures in life. I'm like, "No, thanks.. But I still can live without all your pressures." I can become whoever I wanted to be. I want to be as ordinary as others. I wanted to go to "jamming places", to late night parties, to anywhere everyone goes to enjoy their lives. There are times where I wanted to just disappear, where I felt that I'm going to burst if these did not stop. However, I'm too weak to give up those expectations.
My college course, the university I'm going to attend to, the places I'm going to visit, the time I'm going home. They are all controlled. My grades, they need to meet others' expectations. They just need to.
As soon as I had my first steps in pre-school, though unaware, my life is already full of pressure. There was a time where I was chosen to participate in a spelling contest. I was feverish then, but still, I was put in a situation where there were several book indexes in my table, and was asked to memorize them all.
I do not blame the people putting a lot of pressure on my life. Though being subject to pressure is very hard, I think that these pressures are for a very good future. I passed the course with flying colors, I got the board exams, and I have landed a very good job now. Those pressures came in handy in my life, eh?
And oh, remember that when carbon is subjected to very high pressure, diamonds are produced.
