If you were doing the shove-fest thing to get your big stack, people are going to mark you as a wild player and will be looking to call you with lesser hands. So when you do have chips, bluffing is more hazardous as you're more likely to be called.
However without any evidence to the contrary, I'd say that whatever behavior is getting you a short stack to begin with is also knocking you out. I'd guess you're too aggro, but I don't know.
When you're a short stack decisions are easy. You *need* chips so doing the life-or-death plays is fine. When you have a nice sized stack you need substantially better hands to play big pots, because there's no need for the risky behavior.
