    Red face I am blessed to have a few persons in my life......

    Hi everyone, is the following sentence correct? My question is does the word "remove" make sense in the sentence? Could you please suggest me some other words?


    "I am blessed to have a few persons in my life who know how to remove my stress."

    It makes sense, though I might use "relieve", "alleviate", or "eliminate" instead.

    Also, consider using "people" instead of "persons", as in my opinion "persons" is a cold, technical word most often found in "legalese".
