"Laziness Does Not Exist." Do you agree?

Price in this article that I've linked here, if you're curious to dig more into his work, talks about why hard work is problematic because oftentimes marginalized people and people of color and those dealing with other mental illness and issues are called lazy

I also want to share a link real quick that is referenced in the article by Dr. Price, and it's often used by therapists in relation to values. So if you're feeling unclear right now on your values, wondering if perhaps they aren't in line with where you are, and maybe that's why you're feeling sluggish or unmotivated or any of those synonyms I discussed, this sheet can be really useful and helping clarify where your values are right now.

There's a difference between the image of working or success, work, career success, and actually doing it

I really appreciate your perspective on this in relation to there not being many, if any, jobs that exist in the United States where you're not working hard. And it's interesting because it makes me feel aware, too, of just like, what's hard for someone can wildly differ depending on life stage, skill, ability, any physical, mental or emotional limitations. And I think that's what's really interesting about a lot of the work that Dr
