Sorry I actually do not understand your question but words with the “-ing” ending usually imply (present form verbs) of what you were recently doing/what was recently happening Such as; “I was sitting at that table today”. or “I was sitting right on that spot yesterday”.
I don’t completely understand the rest but “done“ is just the past particle of “do”. Ex) To do, doing, I had to, it had to be done I guess these are words that can be used differently in the same sense
@Joey06 Both mean the same thing :) 1.“She was always trying to...” means that she often tried to make friends with animals.
2. “She has tried to...” means that in the past she has tried to make friends with animals.
You can say that “she was always” is referring to the girl always/constantly trying to befriend the animals. “She has tried to” is just affirming/saying that she has tried to befriend the animals in the past. So it doesn’t tell you if she tried to once or many times.
