    Default The negative stigma of "trying too hard"

    I feel like if you put in a lot of effort into anything, it is almost always a win- win situation. I remember when I sucked at drawing or running, but I tried my hardest and I made some massive improvements and became really good at it.



    Even if you fail, it is always good experience in my opinion.

    Almost.

    You answer your own question right of the bat.

    Stay frosty.

    Almost is good enough for me.

    Trying hard is better than not trying. So why the negatives for it.

    You're trying too hard when you try to fit in a certain clothing style but fail at it pretty hard, when people with a lot of experience know that you're going to fail regardless (think school or work) or when you're trying to get something that you won't get whatsoever (like a GF/BF). Usually trying too hard involves nuisances for people whatever you're trying to do.

    If someone tells you you are failing, how does he say that "positively"?

    Stay frosty.

    I was failing in my P.E classes and my art classes, but every time I failed I made increments in improvement. Eventually I got good.

    I had to fail to improve.

    This topic is prime example of "trying to hard."

    cya.
    the future is bleak, uncertain, beautiful
    tomorrow they might come and arrest us all
    only if you listen closely can you hear the machines
    beneath the side walk whispering
    the machines beneath the side walk are
    always whispering
    strive to listen close
    please, try to be free
    don't be afraid
    the end of the world will never come
