Are you lazy?
February 4, 2007 10:03am CST
I remember back as a kid I had a lot of problems and some pretty big chips on my shoulders and felt pretty worthless most of the time. I didn't like the foster parents I was given to and I didn't like work at all. I was really lazy and would slack off any time I wasn't being watched. Over the years I grew out of this somewhat but I have always remained lazy. But I don't accept the fact that I am lazy and I make myself do things. If I get up to leave the room during a commercial I will leave my cup or a plate on the TV tray, but because I don't like being lazy I tell myself to return and bring them to the kitchen. I don't just do it automatically, I have to tell myself all the time and I am in my 50s. My son and wife think I am the hardest working person they know and can't believe I think I am lazy. Am I the only one that is truly lazy that forces himself to do things every single day of life?

Ohh webMann, I will beat you in this lazyness. As a kid I was lazy as a teenager I was lazy and now as a young lady I am lazy lol. Specially in the moring time and in winter season, I am the lazy person who will beat any one. I just can't get up early in the morning, I have tried so hard but in vain. Sometime I can't motivate myself to go outside in this freezing cold.

I am with you on the winter time being lazy. I go for days without ever going out the front door. I have everything here at home, along with my office, so I don't go out unless it's important. Like tonight. I will force myself to go out tonight because we are playing guitars tonight and that is worth freezing my butt off for a few minutes gettting there. I don't have a problem getting out of bed very often as I feel that sleep is great but too much is a waste of the hours I have in a day.

You're not alone. A lot of days I find I am the same. For example my dishes from last night! are still sitting in the sink and on the counter and in a few minutes I am going to have to force myself to get up and do them. I'd much rather be lazy and stay here in front of the computer, but I realize it is something I have to do. They won't get done on their own. So you are definitely not alone and it's nice to know we can admit how lazy we really are at heart. Great discussion. I'm sure you and I are not alone in this.
