tiene dificultades con traducción, pero no soy una inglaterra y por eso la frase en inglés puede ser mal también:

I was pushed into getting past simple pleasures of life in order to catch up with the standards of maturity.

Lo que tiene es:

Me puso a pasar por delante les placeres sencillos de mi vida para ponerme al corriente de madurez.

Gracias por ayudarme.

Spanish and English are both my first languages. After some thought, this is the most accurate translation I could think of: Me vi obligado a dejar atrás los simples placeres de la vida con la finalidad de alcanzar las normas de la madurez. Hope that works for you!
