All of our moms don’t know how to use technology. That’s the stereotype, but it’s actually true with my mom. She calls herself computer illiterate. She’s had a computer for a decade. If you bring up any technological advancement she will practically shy away from using it. She actually could if she tried, but she doesn’t try.
Some people won’t try to do something because they’re afraid they won’t be able to do it or they simply think they can’t.
The thing is, there is a very good chance that if they tried they could do it. The only surefire way to not do something is to never try to do it. You may fail, but that’s okay. It’s like the old proverb, “If at first you don’t succeed/try, try, try again.”
It’s better to try and fail than to never try at all.
