There has been so many times where I have been in a situation where someone called me lazy. Another thing I constantly hear is “you do not work”. These are false and harmful assumptions. Just because my job is untraditional and not 9-5, does not give someone the right to dismiss my work ethic. It is disappointing because regardless of how much I work or not, it is never enough. Living in a capitalist country is hard. You are expected to work endlessly even sacrificing breaks, vacations, etc. Most people I know do not take many vacation days or enjoy/take their lunch break.
Passive does not equal lazy. Passiveness allows one to recharge and focus on their well being. If you are more passive than others around you, that is okay.
