Never trying is something that I believe is pretty bad because you'll never know what your true potential is. I'll admit I stopped trying and caring about certain things while I was growing up - such as, not paying attention in class and getting in trouble, because I figured it was just too hard for me. It was a pretty bad decision and I wish I tried harder.
But failing is also a pretty big thing because I failed at certain things in my life - such as, cheating and breaking another people's hearts.
But in your opinion, which one do you think is worse? Failing or never trying?
