The pressure builds and builds until so much steam is being forced out of a tiny opening that it begins to whistle -- and then it screams. And if you leave it long enough, the lid might just pop off. Now, imagine that's your life. Some or most of your life is building up a lot of pressure and it's about to explode. Things could get really messy for a while, but the relief you'll feel when the pressure is off of you will be well worth it. You'll finally be able to move on to something else.If you want to make things a little easier, you can find aspects of your life that clearly need improvement and begin to make the changes yourself. That will help release some of the pressure early, so you won't deal with quite such a big eruption. Something you've depended on for a long time will suddenly disappear -- your car might die or your computer might crash completely -- and you'll need to simply accept that as fact and go out and get something better.
