"The only pressure you get is what you put on yourself." Football legend Johnny Unitas who was known for being great under pressure.
What he means is that in the end a person has to control the faucet. You can't live you life with other people pressuring you to do this or that. You have to use your seichel to determine what you can handle and what you should handle. And if you allow others, particularly people you don't respect, to pressure you, then really you have pressured yourself.
