The bottom line is the following
How does the squeezed person feel – bugged, irritable, victimized etc.
How do the comfortable people feel – comfortable!
In other words, in life we are in a squeeze or not!
If we feel pressured, which as Freud says three major factors contribute to a feeling of pressure / stress and anxiety; our own Yetzer Hara (i.e. are we doing the right thing or not) the outside environment (finances etc.) and fear of shame (which is a very very strong fear in societies where people shame each other and people basically become neurotic for the psyche does whatever possible to avoid shame as a child does to avoid his parents disapproval.)
