This makes me think of my mom. When i have done something and i tried my hardest, she says i cant try my hardest because i have to be perfect. This drives me crazy. I dont like being perfect. I get straight A's and one B? She says im awful. I just feel so pressured to be perfect that i just break because i know im a dissapointment.
English is an expansive language, anyone who has seen the size of an unabridged English dictionary can tell you that. It's also a language that's ever changing and evolving, so of course there are some words that fall out of favor and are hardly ever used, but maybe it's time to bring some of them back!
