THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING
BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT
JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING
Well, a good example would be if a morbidly, dangerously, unhealthily obese person spent their days laying on the couch whilst complaining about their lack of health, pain, obesity, etc. and never attempting to remedy the situation.
Many people - seemingly especially on Tumblr for some compelling reason - are good at complaining excessively about lacking results but then - when pushed or encouraged (there are differences but both more often than not have the same principle) they get belligerent and stubborn.
I’ve found the less I complain and the more I actually “try”, the farther I get. I can’t remember the last time someone told me I “wasn’t trying”. Perhaps I was too busy getting things done.
