I decided a while ago to stop trying so hard.
- Stop trying so hard to be friends with people who could care less about me
- stop trying so hard to be funny when its obvious I am not that funny.
- stop trying so hard to flirt, who the heck am I kidding? I cant flirt!
The stess level went down alot. I discovered that I was alot happier.
I also stopped trying so hard with some of the guys that I tried to get to know. Being aloof sometimes gets me somewhere.
If I wasnt trying so hard with small talk and being myself, I could have saved myself the grief. Just let them come to me I guess.
