Losing Stamina when getting hit

I really Don’t understand why you lose stamina upon getting hit, it just seems to lead to bosses comboing you after 1 hit. i feel like your stagger meter and stamina should be separate or you should only lose stamina while blocking to stop getting perma stunned

This is fine. When you get beaten, you get tired too. I added a little stamina, found a plus to the stamina on the item and now I can skip punches, dodge 5-7 times, and attack and all this on the same scale
