Prude - prude definition

prude definition - Prude

For others it is a way to pull the wool over the eyes to the fact that they can not - they are doing everything possible, is not it? Exhaustion is the proof of this statement. It can not be their fault, because they are trying so very hard.

Still others are subconsciously using hard work as a way to avoid something. Is it fear of success? or almost any other fear / feeling?
