    My dad thinks TV shows

    and society is turning me gay. He thinks that my insisting on wearing 'boys' clothes, and refusing to wear makeup and dresses, AND, the fact that I call out anyone who's being truly sexist, AND, that I believe in equality for EVERYONE, must mean I'm gay. I told him that I don...

    dude...... my ex tried to pressure me all of

    the flipping time to have his kids. NEVER AGAIN!!!! I will never pressure anyone or allow them to pressure me. It's unfair, means you don't respect them or their wishes, and is completely wrong.

    My mum tries to pressure me into looking a

    certain way with the way I dress, my hair and my makeup. The last time I let my mum do eye shadow on me, I looked like a clown! What suits her, won't necessarily suit me, and I like the way I'm doing my makeup. Also, other people try to pressure me into having children. I...

    I was once pressured to get married.

    .. it didn't happen, thank goodness. I am much better at letting people know what I want and how best to motivate me.

    Uncomfortable Feeling.

    When someone pressures me, I end up feeling bullied into doing things. I hate it! The worst is when it comes to spending money.

    Pressure Me

    People all over have been pressuring me seeing a doctor since I haven't been to one in a few years.  I know, I may need seeing one and at the moment it is not the right time.  I need something first.

    When I was younger, I still lived with

    both parents, and my father was emotionally, verbally, and physically abusive. Even after I stopped seeing my dad, I was still stuck with my sister, who is a living copy of him, so I can never really escape the abuse forever. So when I get pressured and say no, I feel like that...

    You Can Try...

    But it ain't happening. I'm a very opiniated young woman. I have my morals and I have standards. If you try to get me to do something I don't want to do, you'll hear about it for days. I will not do something just because you want me to. You don't like it? GTFO. Have a nice...

    I don't like it when people start to talk to me

    then turn it intimate, or straight up ask very personal questions. There's a lot of people on here I could name and shame, but I don't. Those people who try to pressure you for things, call them 'requests' I don't care about requests. Its called pressuring and I tell you what if...

    I gave in to the pressure last week.

    My friends convinced me to be someone I'm not, and it completely bit me in the ***. I'm 18, and still a senior in high school. My friends wanted me to go to a party at an abandoned house, which was already creepy. After a lot of pressure and some name calling, I went. There...

    If You Ask

    If you ask me, and I say no, do NOT continuously insist and try to get a yes. "Oh c'mon, it'll be fun!" is a good sign that it will not be fun for me and a good sign that you should stop talking before I start getting mad.
