  • Sure but theres not much else you can do.
  • I think we ALL do at times, sweets. I'm glad to see you're happy today!
  • Yes! I've been having troubles with my roommate being messy and I've been trying to throw hints at her that she is not cleaning and that I always am... But she isn't reading them... So I'm getting tired of trying...
  • Nope. I never try, so I'm never disappointed.
  • doing so will make me feel like a failure.i don't want to be a failure just because my endeavours took a while to bear fruit.
  • Yeah. But still, I try and try again. I'm kinda hard-headed.
  • No, but I sometimes get tried of tiring. :o)
  • I make sure that I don't stop trying until I finished that goal. I try my best in doing so. Sometimes, one alone may not do the job, and there are other resources to help you out.
  • The only way that I would get tired of trying, if there was no progress. That means I didn't learning anything new from trying, such as improvements or alternative actions. And also that I did not gain any progress at all from continually trying. And only then would I get tried of trying.
  • I don't "try". I do or I don't.
  • I never give up ever ,I watched my dad everyday go to work never missing a day of work even at his sickest days!! He did that for his family!! One day I saw him putting his worn out work boots on and his well used tattered shoe lace broke on his shoes !! He calmly unlaced them down the boot and tied them together and went to work with no complaint !! So you see people that never give up and try are always admired by someone big or small!!
  • To be honest, yes I do. Some days I feel I've had enough! But I never quit, and it's always worth it in the end.
  • All the time!!!
  • I find everything and almost everyone trying these days.
  • Especially lately, I have noticed that trying harder and putting yourself out there more gets you farther.
  • ALL THE TIME!
  • Somewhere down the line, I'd say yes. ..but that's like after a LOT of tries ;P
  • I get tired of trying but am finding that I can use this time period to regroup and rethink my course of action. Perhaps being tired of trying is good in that allows you to step back and reflect on where you're going.
  • Do I get tired of it? Yes. But I keep at it anyways. I don't quit until I win.
  • Yes and its gotten me to where I am and it sucks.
  • I am usually like that.
  • im 15 and i gave up 2-3 years ago
  • Everyone gets tierd. But pain is temporary. Pride lasts forever.
  • I got tired of trying when I was 10 or 11, actually... Even after I got out of the situations there and my life got better, I didn't forgive myself for not taking my own life until I was 17. I felt I was a coward who didn't deserve to live if I couldn't be brave enough and strong enough to take my own life. The three years since managing to forgive myself seem so much longer, so much fuller than the 6 or 7 I regretted life.
  • Yes..Yawn..zzzzzzzzzzzzz
  • I got soooo tired of trying. Then I started trying to be more proactive than reactive. I tried to anticipate what kinds of things might go wrong when I was making choices. I'd ask myself, what's the worst thing that could happen if I do this. If I was ready to deal with that "worst thing" then I went ahead. Other things, I just tried to anticipate and take care of things ahead of time so they didn't develope into worse things later . . . from small things like maintenance on a car to keeping my 6 month dental appointments. Staying on top of things made my life much easier. The book, "The Road Less Traveled" helped me a lot.
  • Don't we all at some point? But, just when we think we've had enough, we know things will work out for the better. :)
  • You know, I do. But the alternative is giving up and refuse to do that.
  • I don't try at all. I walk this walk with ease and joy
  • Sure, but what's the alternative, giving up? Besides, not all days are filled with trying...there are also days of laying low, hanging back, basking in the sun. If you're lucky, it all evens out.
  • Often.
  • yes but as my gran use to say god loves a tryer
  • hello,yes especialy on ab and my laptop.my laptops prformanceis very poor,it changes programs as im working,eeewwww i could scream!
  • Yes. Trying to be the person everyone else wants me to be.
  • life will beat you down and down, its how many times you get back up again that counts. its how many punches you take that make life worth living, if everyone had it easy the world would be a terrble place. so be glad that life is tough so you can be proud of all the scars you bear. i am.
  • Yes, which is why it is crucial to know where to go and what to do in those times. Faith over religion.
  • All the time. But we have to keep trying. We may suceed. If we don't try, nothing is possible.
  • As Homer Simpson says, "trying is the first step towards failing, so the lesson is, never try".
  • sometimes but I pursue that once again.Like Robert Bruce!
  • Sometimes. But never for too long. It's like the old saying goes "When the times get tough the tough get going!"
  • no...and i shouldn't be...it'd put me in no man's land!!
  • no. "do, or do not. there is no try" ~ jedi master yoda.
  • Very few times..but first time is really enjoyable...
  • Sometimes I plug away at things and the rewards seem too few. It's disappointing.
  • Only when I fail.
  • I have been known to get tired of "arguing with crazy" here on AB,but I'll usually give it a good try before giving up.Lol!
  • I prefer "tired of being tired", but yes. I've worked the same no mind job now for 33 years and believe if I have not reached burnout I am at least slightly charred.
  • Nope. Trying for me is all about doing it, and doing it again if it doesn't work the first time. Rather than with hesitation, I do it with determination. If I failed, then my effort in trying is itself my reward.
  • sometimes...
  • Never get tire.
  • No, being tried means that I surrender.
  • yes,as of now im ready to dig a hole and throw myself in it ad the heck with everyone else im tired of do this do that,ah no internet,kiss peoples tails oh crap stop this crap please!
  • Yes I think we all do but no sense in giving up. If we don't continue through things no one will do it for us.
  • Yep, I'm kind of there right now....
  • yeah...certain things though, not at everything.
  • Yes,often.
  • few times!
  • Yes, I just feel like falling to my knees and giving up
  • Yeah I do what homer simpson said to do.
  • i think when you try so hard and it fails it is hard to start anew.. for me, i know i am sick of trying .. trying to make others happy so i dont have the burden of harming them if i were to leave... that gets tiring really quickly.. i dont know what to say or if what i say even matters, but i felt compelled to respond for some weird ass reason...
  • HELL YES. It's such a damned strain.
  • of course, I even quit for a spell just to throw myself at the same lost cause, that is what it is to be married is it not?
  • Never in 60 years!
  • Yes, every day which makes me want to try harder
  • I used too! And in all honesty it does get hard at times yet, I also try to keep in mind that there are people who love me EVEN when I can't love myself or don't feel that love and anything I do affects them too. I have lost several loved one's to suiside also and the pain it leaves behind is enormous . I'm not suggesting you are thinking suiside I am merely letting you know We are not the only one's it affects! Though we sometimes feel alone most of the time it is just a feeling ! I pray alot and read Joyce Meyer's books as well as the Bible it helps alot so does listenibg to fun,happy music or watching a comedy! These are the things that help me the most. I also was once told to write down at least 10 things that are good about life or myself and if I can't find them ask someone who knows me. IT works!
  • Absolutely. I often wonder if it is all worth it.
  • it feels like nothing is ever going to get better.
  • yes sometimes.......but i remember this quote..' try try and don't cry'.... and i try again....
  • Hahaha! You have no idea. Today is yet another very special day. They just keep getting worse. The one single thing that keeps me driving on is that tomorrow might be a better day and tomorrow I might be happy. Todays is a wash. It's early yet too... just 8 in the morning but it's already shot - gauranteed. This isn't a life. What matters is that I'm working towards changing it. It's not easy. So much crap is stacked up against me the feat seems impossible but Regardless I drive on, waiting to see what tomorrow holds. Hang in there. Life constantly changes.
  • Only 5 days out of 7 in the week! Sometimes it's easier to give up, but if everyone gave up where would we be? SOmetimes trying is also half the fun (depending on what your trying of course!)
  • almost every day. trying is just too hard sometimes. i try to try, but does it work?? no.
  • i think everyone does some time of everyday i know thats how it is for me
  • No I don't not if I want something bad enough :D
  • Yeah but,I never quit.When I'm tired of searching the keys,I just break the damn door.
  • Nope. I live for it.
  • yeah, actually, i'm done trying.
  • Yes, sometimes but, keep moving along and hoping for the best..:)
  • I finally am in a great mindset after being the Van Wilder at my college. I was a pothead/casual weed smoker which quickly progressed into 3 grams a day habit/social cigarette smoker which quickly progressed to 1 1/2 packs a day/drank a decent amount/dabbled in lsd and shrooms/and tons of legal yet to be tested buy on the internet drugs ie: salvia and so forth. I was what they call "self medicating" yet I didn't realize I was or why I was. Let me first start with a good old background story/cheesy montage. I was never a great student in school... ever. Yet the last I was...was stupid, even though after awhile I was having serious doubts. I took on the role of class clown. I rarely did my homework instead looking outside at the kids playing on recess. why couldn't I be out there playing instead of doing these boring assignments. I would constantly pass by the skin of my teeth due to my ability to charm pretty much anyone. Overall throughout my entire school career K-12, I was acting in order to fit in, but on the inside I was feeling so disconnected/lonely from everyone. The absolute worst part was not having any answers for why I was behaving as I was, and believe me its not as if me/my parents didn't try. In elementary school they thought it was ADD, got tested and wasn't. They said I just had a problem with authority so on and so forth. Fast Forward to my Senior Year in College. I got to the point where I didn't want to/couldn't fake it anymore. I was seriously contemplating suicide because I personally couldn't deal with the world and how it was treating me. I felt so low about myself self, had no self esteem, wasn't eating at all, just smoking what I came to realize, tons and tons of money I would charm from parents/earn from jobs. I willingly told my parents how I was feeling one weekend when I was home. This was after I accidentally pick up and read a book at home "An Unquiet Mind" that my mother had laying around. I got only a few chapters in and began to cry because it was honestly the first time I was able to ever fully relate to someone/something...ever!. The words felt as if they were my words, and I felt so much for the writer, it was life changing. I had heard the word Bipolar/ manic depression mentioned before, but I never really gave them any thought. Turns out it runs in my family on my mother's side, which makes the possibility of her children developing it higher. With the support of my parents I took a medical withdrawl from my final semester, in which I went to probably 5 of the 50 classes total. Yet when you have a medical reason, man do people let you get your way. Not saying you should abuse it because that won't get you anywhere. I really didn't care about school anymore and would rather have said fuck it, but it saved my ass in a situation that I thought was hopeless and essentially allowed me to stand up for myself and my illness. I willingly entered myself into a inpatient treatment facility which was followed by a few months of out patient behavioral therapy. I pretty much had to learn how to live, but this time...really. The stigma of mental hospitals may still be there, but let me tell you, this was more of a resort than a hospital. what I found was 90% of the people I met there were exactly like me, it was amazing. I was there for 10 days in which they tested me and put me on medications that would help my situation (Seroquel XR 200mg as a mood stabilizer (It is a miracle drug that has numerous uses for tons of different conditions) and Lexapro for an antidepressant. Flash forward 1 1/2 years and here I am. Medications have changed slightly, still on seroquel and have no idea how I slept for the 20 years before it. Wellbutrin is my new antidepressant and it completely kills the craving to ever have a cigarette ever again, amazing! anddd here's the catch, Adderall XR for none other than ADHD. I am college graduate and yes their may be a recession occurring within our time, but frankly ever since the day I was put on medication, I honestly was given a new lease on life, a true second chance! I know that if I can put up with Bipolar disorder/adhd/depression unmedicated for 20 years, I can absolutely accomplish anything in this world, sky is the limit. If you find yourself self medicating with pot/cigarettes/alcohol/and other drugs, truly ask yourself, what is the reason I am doing this to myself, for there is always a reason. It took me reaching absolute rock bottom to realize my reason, but it doesn't have to for you. Even in the last few years knowledge of medication has improved ten fold. They know more now about mental health conditions then say 10 years ago when they new nothing. Everyone is different and it will take time to find your perfect balance of medication. Figure that you are willing to be patient with the process because afterall unlike the SAT's, these meds can prepare you for the rest of your life. There are a lottttt of people that give up way to easily thinking that a certain medication didn't work therefore none will work. Medication can do 50% of the work. The other half comes down to personal willpower, you can't expect to get better overnight, it is a process of day by day taking one step at a time. From my empathetic heart, best of luck turning your lives around, it is never to late, NEVER, to improve the quality of your life forever. Learn from my experience. For all you pot smokers out there, I feel ya. I thought weed was helping my anxiety, but in reality it was making it worse/ and creating even more problems. Like alcohol, Smoking pot on a regular basis can seriously damage your chemical balance of your lovely brain. The weed of today ain't no dirt from the 60's, hell its not even dro anymore, it is extremely powerful. Let the medication do its job. If you want to smoke, I can't say I encourage it because even though I may think it gets a bad reputation due to ignorance. You can get in serious situations with the law, which will impede your road to your new life tremendously. Be smart, everything in moderation/nothing and I can't emphasize this more,NOTHING while driving any type of automobile. Especially don't sell marijuana. Selling weed, as easy as the money is, is the number one easiest way to get seriously busted being that it is so prevalent and available. Also there are always people out there who themselves have been busted and are now on the laws side in order to help their situation. Be smart
  • No, because I push myself until my goal is reached.
  • All the time, life is overwhelming sometimes.
  • yes i do ... but i just ... get up and move forward, that all i can really do, you've got a strong pair of legs there ... use them
  • o my word YES!!!! i wish i could just stop trying but sadly i care to much to stop.
  • Yes,but failure isnot an option,some days doesnot matter what you know its just a matter of out working everybody else.
  • yes, a longtime ago. i also got tired of not trying. then i took a nap.
  • Don't we all... at some point..
  • I used to but since so much has happened in my life I have grown stronger and a better fighter. What i mean by that is that I now know that giving up or even feeling that emotion is self-defeating and I will not be defeated anymore even though the challenge may seem impossible for me to win.
  • When you say try to the mind it translates as fail. I suggest saying i will do it or i expect to do it and you will succeed!
  • Working through OCD without meds is extremely difficult. I do get fed up of trying, but I'm determined to keep working through it.
  • Yeah, just about everyday, but it passes quickly.
  • When I have, it is because I keep trying in the same way. Doing something over and over in the same way and expecting a different result is the tongue- in -cheek definition of mental illness. So, either ask around (or read around) for a new method of approach, or select other things to try--the more the merrier. Good luck.
  • Yes, but like an idiot I keep on anyway. +5
  • Yes quite often actually.
