What’s the difference between tired of and tired from?
In English, when you are tired of something, you are feeling bored of that thing or no longer interested in that thing. On the other hand, when you are tired from something, you are physically and/or mentally exhausted because of that thing.
Here are some example sentences using tired of:
- I am tired of eating pizza everyday for lunch. Let’s get something different today.
- I’m so tired of my neighbor making noise all the time. I wish he were more considerate.
Here are some examples using tired from:
- I’ve been working overtime every day this week. I’m really tired from working so much.
- I’m a little tired from all of this hiking. Why do we take a break for a while?
Keep in mind the best way to remember this or any vocabulary in English is to take the word or phrase write it in a sentence that’s true for you or true in your world and then memorize your sentences.
You can even take your sentences and write them in the comments below. I would love to see your examples. And if you really want help with vocabulary, sign up for my free vocabulary workshop (see below).
