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".
