In this blog post for Natural Lifemanship, I explore the idea of "pressure". Often used in a negative way, "pressure" can bring to mind the idea of stress or coercion. In NL we use it as neither a good nor bad thing - it simply is a fact of life and relationships. The thing that makes it a positive or negative thing for relationships is whether that pressure is appropriate or not. Appropriate pressure is very different from inappropriate pressure (i.e. too much or too little) and YES there is a thing as too little pressure in a relationship!
