contrary to common belief, stress is not necessarily a bad thing. it is sometimes what allows people to perform their potential ability to the fullest. 用生活中的实例说明上述观点.
we can’t ignore the fact that stress isn‘t so bad a thing as is often supposed to be（并不像我没想象得那么糟糕）. in fact, a certain amount of stress helps people to develop their potential ability fully.
there was a time when i focused my attention on playing games rather than doing my schoolwork. as you can imagine, my study couldn’t be worse. so annoyed was my father that he reduced my pocket money. worse still, he warned me that he wouldn’t pay school fee for me unless i made progress. with the stress laid on me（肩负压力）, i had to spare no efforts to study every subject. eventually, my grades improved greatly.
in conclusion, as long as we take a positive attitude towardsstress, it can serve as stimulation (激励)for our development.
