There are certain times that feeling pressured into doing something is a good thing. You may feel the pressure to do well in school or the pressure to take a great job opportunity. However, there are some things that you just can’t let yourself be pressured into. You need to make the decision yourself, and do it with a clear hear. Here are five things you should never let someone pressure you into it.
Buying a Property
Getting onto the property ladder is a major thing, but you need to do it when the time is right for you. You also need to do it when the property is just right for you. There are many downsides to picking the wrong place, and many of them are financial ones.
You could buy just before the market crashes, so you end up spending more. It’s possible to spend too much on a house that is losing value. You may even need to pay out more because of damages that weren’t spotted due to the pressure to buy.
Never let a man pressure you into having sex when you don’t want to.
It doesn’t matter if it is your first time or you’ve been with the same man for a few years now. If you feel pressured, you’re not going to enjoy it that much and you will only end up resenting him. You want to do it because, well, you want to! Do it because you love him and really want to feel close to him.
There seems to be this big thing about getting married. Some people will say that you should never live together without that piece of paper, but you can’t let them pressure you into getting married.
Doing that will just lead to you resenting the whole thing, and you may not actually be happy in the relationship in the long run. It is much harder to get divorced than it is just to separate if you weren’t married in the first place!
Going Into a Certain Career
Your parents want the best for you. They want you to take a certain career that they believe is the best for you. However, that may not be the right move for you.
Now, there are times that you should just take a job for the sake of having a job—it’s an income and you can focus on your career around that. However, when it comes to studying and planning out your life, don’t let others pressure you to take a path you don’t want.
You should never let someone pressure you into having kids, especially if you’re not sure you even want them in your life.
Some women want to focus on their career and not a family, and there is nothing wrong with that. If you’re with someone who wants children, you need to talk about this and discuss going your separate ways.
