Balancing patience and aggression
So I've only very recently decided to get serious about developing my skills at playing poker. I feel my understanding and abilities have grown a lot in the last month or so, but I seem to have problem with finding an appropriate amount of aggression to play with. When I first started, I was a very passive player, but since I've been reading lots of books and articles, I've been trying to adopt a more aggressive style, which was working well at first but I think I got carried away at some point along the line.
My main issue seems to be finding an appropriate balance between playing a tight aggressive game, and playing like a crazed kleptomaniac. I know that, opponents, position, and timing are main factors to consider when attempting to steal the blinds, or snag a pot, but is there a "optimal" frequency to be making these attempts? Constantly worrying about if I'm being aggressive enough, and trying not to appear too tight or weak seems to be messing with my patience, and I find myself making plays that are more reckless than usual.
I usually play microstakes, and I know a lot of people say that ABC poker is the way to go here. Am I overthinking things too much at this level?
