Reply To: Belief Change To Past Tense
I appreciate what you mean, so if you perceive “haven't” to be more present-tense, use a sentence that pushes the belief into the past.
How about “I hadn't been doing a very good job at…” or “I wasn't doing a very good job at…”?
You could, as you mentioned, put it in strictly negative terms – “I did a bad job at…”
How about making that even snappier? Something like “I performed poorly at…”
I think adding your own wording is so important and, for some people, there may be more resonance with something like “I sucked at…”
Please let us know how you get on.
