Hello,

I would like to ask the following:

Being a princess is very stressful.
To be a princess is very stressful.

Which is correct and why? What is the rule?

Thanks a lot.

Both are correct.

Hi Bev.,
I came back to forums again to learn English. :slight_smile: I am happy you are still here.
What are the differences between the two sentences?

Hi Richard,

Nice to ‘see’ you again.

Both the infinitive and 'ing form of the verb can be used in general statements like this as a part of the subject.
Some people would argue that one or the other places greater emphasis on the action, but there’s not really a significant difference.
