Mine is that I physically lack any talent in creating physical artistic media. Music I'm great at.

Mine is more like I know I can do it but I'm afraid I will not be able to finish it, like a lot of projects I will start then get to a busy period of life (work) and it has to go on hold then I cat n't back into it or I can't get back into it... >_<""

A mix of the ones you mentioned, but I always find that most stressful to me is people's reactions when I make something good or that is better than theirs. They always give these backhanded "compliments" that make me feel like a horrible person for being good at art or proud of what I have done. Saying "oh wow yours is so much better than mine." is not a compliment. It just makes the person feel bad for you and not know how to help sometimes.

The one and only thing that stresses me out is having my parents and sister around because I draw........romantic art...and that's out of character for the person everyone knows me as, but on the inside, it's very in character for me.

I know exactly what you mean. Although in my case I'm usually drawing dark or gorey things. My parents will look at me weird and worry about me. I just enjoy drawing those things and it doesn't bother me at all. But others just don't get it.
