The only pressure you feel is the pressure you put on yourself. Yes our external world has influence but it is our choice to take things to heart or not. Our nature is freedom!
"beyond the age of information is the age of choices." -charles eames
Use the pressure you naturally feel to channel it towards creating diamonds in your life jewels of the process not so caught up in the mistakes and failure. They are just part of the creation and design process.
Mistakes: are the things you try to make it better
Failure: is arbitrary, you may fail at one thing but you succeed at giving your best in effort or you succeed in understanding that didn't work :-)
Life including its obstacles could be a pleasure... "who ever said that pleasure wasn't functional?"
TAKE YOUR PLEASURE SERIOUSLY!
