OT: Lazy?

All my life I’ve been told I’m ’lazy’. My closest relatives/family members have said ’it’s like it hurts her to…’ (do whatever chore I had to do). And: ‘All you do is sit and talk (or read)’. Frankly, I’m really tired of hearing those words. It’s as if people who are more active feel they have a right to criticize those who are different from them. I realize that society favors those who are quick and active over us who tend to sit and think. The former are probably more useful. Be that as it may. I have begun to resent being described that way. I’m low energy. I tend to be pensive and think before I act. Is that necessarily bad? So from now on, I’d like to ban the word ’lazy’. Call me a low energy person. I can live with that. My dad was one too, and my aunt (his sister). In return I won’t call the high energy people hyper.
