One of the things that I noticed early on when I came to Japan was that many people sleeping on the trains still often had a stressed look on their face, their brow furrowed with worry and stress even in their dreams.

In comparison to this I can consider myself lucky for living in a country with a slower pace. Although life is not only not easy here, but it's downright very hard, as you have to face serious living-problems month-by-month.

The amount of stress put on kids to perform in school, for example, is really unbelievable here, especially those preparing for high school and university.

Oh yes, I have already heard about it, it just escaped my attention when I wrote my previous response to Brukhard.
Well, it throws new light upon the question of suicide in younger age - as we do not experience this specific problem here in Hungary. That's why I did not understand what kind of sky-rocking problems teengers can have. But okay, now I see. And can't comment it as I've never been there.
