Bruno had to bare the extra burden and pressure of being Abuela’s only son. 
It’s not much of a stretch to assume that Abuela may have hoped to have seen something of Pedro in Bruno’s face and personality. 
And given the time period she may have expected Bruno to have become the head of the family, a provider.
In fact, the name Bruno can mean armour or protection. (according to Behind the Name website.) She wanted her son to become the strong one of the family.
However, it is a dangerous - if understandable thing - to expect a child to become a clone of a dead family member. 
Bruno does look like his father, but he struggled to deal with the weight of expectations that Abuela placed upon him, as well struggling to deal with the mysteries and responsibilities of his gift. 
He never married and we don’t know if he ever had any kind of relationships. His only friends seem to be the rats living in the walls.
Abuela may have felt some kind of disappointment in him, stemming from her own grief and trauma. Bruno would have picked up on this, even from a young age.
TL:DR: Poor Bruno

Me seeing Encanto, where they showed a latino family were all the members had different skin tones, body types and hair styles; even though they were all blood related. Reminding me of my Latino family where we all are physically different from each other, and making me feel finally a little bit represented in a Disney film.

Encanto (specifically the character Mirabel) is the perfect movie for witches who feel like they have no special calling such as not having heritage in any particular path, have never had a deity or spirit reach out to them, are not talented in a particular school of witchcraft, and so on, in this essay I will-

"I can always hear him sort of muttering and mumbling I associate him with the sound of falling sand, ch ch ch"
Ok this breaks my heart because why would you hear sand falling? The only time you should ever hear sand falling is in an hourglass, as time passes.
She came to associate her uncle with the sound of time running out
I think that would send anyone slightly over the edge.

Daisy Johnson as Surface Pressure - from Encanto
Sung by Jessica Darrow, Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
I relate to this song a little too hard and naturally... I relate it to my girl Daisy. SO here's me projecting her possible thoughts throughout the series.
I'm the strong one, I'm not nervous
I feel like Daisy feels a lot of pressure to live up to her powers.
I'm as tough as the crust of the earth is
Tough as the crust of the earth? (we remember when we thought she split the earth's crust?)
And I glow 'cause I know what my worth is
She clearly, throughout the show, has moments where she knows and accepts her value (!!!)
I don't ask how hard the work is Got a rough indestructible surface Diamonds and platinum, I find 'em, I flatten 'em I take what I'm handed, I break what's demanding
"If I can't quake it, I'll break it." Her powers can be very destructive, clearly.
Under the surface I feel berserk as a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus Under the surface Was Hercules ever like "Yo, I don't wanna fight Cerberus"?
There is definitely moments where she does not want to fight their enemies. Nathaniel Malick, Talbot or her own mother etc.
Under the surface I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service
There is moments where she worries about how her life would be without her powers. Who would she be outside of saving the world year in, year out? Would there be any room in the world for Daisy Johnson, not just Quake?
A flaw or a crack The straw in the stack That breaks the camel's back What breaks the camel's back it's
What would be the thing that would be the last straw? Will she find out? Does she want to know?
Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, whoa Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip 'till you just go pop, whoa
Give it to your sister, your sister's older Give her all the heavy things we can't shoulder
At the end of the day it comes down to Daisy saving the day, not without her team, her family. But it so often falls to her. And isn't often Fitz that tells her this? Or Simmons? The people she considers her siblings. Gravitonium to seal the Fear Dimension Rift, Fitz. Sacrificing herself to end the battle with Malick once and for all? Fitz explains it's the only way to stop the chronicoms. Or Coulson, the closest thing she has to a father) in the time loops telling her it's up to her.
(although she's not older than Fitz and Simmons)
Pressure like a grip, grip, grip and it won't let go, whoa Pressure like a tick, tick, tick 'til it's ready to blow, whoa Give it to your sister, your sister's stronger See if she can hang on a little longer Who am I if I can't carry it all? If I falter
The pressure of holding it all together, despite her choices sometimes being dicey, she locks it in to hold on to everythign she has possibly built. Her home, her family.
Under the surface I hide my nerves, and it worsens, I worry something is gonna hurt us
She worries for her family, her friends. Watching and trying to prevent everyone's deaths in the time loops and then eventually having to rely on the time loop to bring them back
Under the surface The ship doesn't swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is
If not her, who? Someone has to finish this.
Under the surface I think about my purpose, can I somehow preserve this?
She is doing this to protect them, the earth, her family, her niece she was yet to meet.
Line up the dominoes A light wind blows You try to stop it tumbling But on and on it goes
Everything hinges on them, to mop it all up, to shield the world from the aftermath of others actions, even decades in the future or past.
But wait If I could shake the crushing weight of expectations Would that free some room up for joy Or relaxation, or simple pleasure?
After all these years, all the mistakes she's made, does she deserve peace and happiness? Is it right to take time to find herself, to find love and joy of her own right, in her own life?
Instead we measure this growing pressure Keeps growing, keep going 'Cause all we know is
Also the link between her powers and pressure?
Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, whoa Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip 'til you just go pop, whoa-oh-oh Give it to your sister, it doesn't hurt And see if she can handle every family burden Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks
Mack being voted in as director makes sense to her, and for a moment the growing pressure was no longer on her shoulders, just until they have to take the fight back up.
No mistakes just
Pressure like a grip, grip, grip and it won't let go, whoa Pressure like a tick, tick, tick 'til it's ready to blow, whoa Give it to your sister and never wonder If the same pressure would've pulled you under Who am I if I don't have what it takes?
Do the others think about this? They do, they're her family, they're all fighting for the same cause. But in the darkest moments it doesn't always feel they do, they don't understand the decisions she has to make, or the overwhelming self doubt she has as she strides into battle
No cracks, no breaks No mistakes, no pressure
Just a thought I've had. If anyone has or makes a video edit of Daisy this song, please let me know as I may cry.
