Definitely know where you're coming from mate. I was in the same situation. I've only been playing for 3 seasons, and I was so desperate to impress and play well that I let it get to me, and stop me from playing my natural game. The only decent innings I played in my first 2 seasons was when I just went out, enjoyed myself and forgot about the fear of failure. Playing club cricket should be fun, and I think you're restricting that if you're worried about failing, just go out, forget about the worries of being dropped, enjoy your batting and express yourself. Good luck!
