For me, a bigger bike allowed me to ride faster and feel like I'm a better rider than I actually am, until I hit actual harder trails and features and get served humble pie. And crashes at higher speeds also typically hurt more or cause more bodily damage. The small bikes IMO help to keep the trails in my wheelhouse interesting and keeps me on my toes without letting the bike go straight down wherever it wants.  But I do also understand the struggle and safety net of 'overbiking', with how well many bikes pedal nowadays and weights that are very comparable to the smaller trail bikes
