Can someone tell me what the expression 無理に取ろうとしないで means? I tried searching for the different parts in dictionary and the internet, but did not succeed. Any help appreciated


無理 = force 無理に = forcibly 取る = to take 取ろうとしない(で) = to try not to take (please)

無理に取ろうとしないで Please don't try to take by force (forcibly).

~ようとする This is a grammar point meaning to attempt to do something, so if you change する into しない, it means to try not to do something.

I hope this helps!
