Trying too hard exists.
There are many things I am still learning, trying to properly grasp and find the balance. As always, the theory is there but somehow when it comes to the practical, things just don't happen the way it does in your head.
I think the thing about trying too hard is not really about 'too much effort'. Effort in and of itself is never a bad thing, it is the side effects they come with that makes it excessive. It could be less time for other things, or it could be that it becomes forced and unnatural.
Maybe that's it. Maybe. I don't know. It's all a blur in my head.
