In order to play chess, you have to try to win :) Otherwise you are denying your opponent a proper game.
If your strength is bouncing between 900 and 1000 (stagnant), then you are not improving. If you want to improve, then you have to have a plan to move forward, which normally involves study, training, and/or mentoring (in addition to playing).
There are a lot of ways to begin developing as a player. A big one is to learn end-game mating scenarios. Others involve start training tactics, studying openings, recording and re-analyzing your games, joining a club, reading chess articles, etc.
You should create a plan for developing your skills (start with learning end games). Execute your plan and refine it as necessary.
