If this is meant to be interesting, the big flaw I can see is that it is all so generic, with no details. This is not a grammatical critique.
What taunting reminders were you getting? How exactly did you "buckle under the pressure"? How exactly did they "help you break free from the shackles of failure"? What does it all mean?
Try not to end a sentence with two dots. It's meaningless. Also "under-pressure" is not a word.
