Pressure. It comes from all directions for all sorts of different reasons. It's especially true once you've graduated or are graduating from college. Pressure causes so much stress.

"Life after graduation is not easy. Like I talked about last week, many changes happen after we leave school. If you're a recent grad (or will be) you've probably had some lost, lonely, sad, and confused moments. It's okay, it might just be a quarter life crisis.
Often times when we graduate from college we experience a certain amount of pressure from society. Whether it be the pressure to find a job — and not just any job, a career — or succeed in our finances, relationships, and personal life.
There is a lot of pressure on recent grads to figure it all out in a short amount of time. So if you feel the pressure, you're not alone. Take a look at the infographic below and you'll really see you're not alone.
