    Hi

    Please make the below sentence correct.

    I tried my level best to keep you as it is where you were before but you believe that I am pretending.

    Best regards

    Welcome to the forum.

    The first thing you need to do is look at your capitalisation. We do not use a capital letter at the beginning of every word, as you have done in your main quote, only at the beginning of a sentence. The same rule applies to the rest of your post where you have used no capitalisation at all between the words "hey" and "correct".
    Please go back and edit your post following the capitalisation rules:

    1) Capitalise the first word of each sentence.
    2) Capitalise the word "I" (first person singular) at all times.
    3) Capitalise proper nouns.

    For your information, your actual quote does not make sense. Try to put it in different words.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "I'm trying my best to get our friendship back to what it used to be, but you still believe I'm just pretending (=not sincere)".

    This is one possibility, I guess. Other members might have different opinions, though. Let's se if they enlighten us on this issue.

    PS: If you had given us the context before, it would have saved you time: you'd probably have got an answer before (context is important).

    Re: Please make this sentence correct.

    Tip for a more relevant title: I tried my level best (as these words begin the sentence you are asking about).
