When people consider you "laid back", is this a good thing, or not so much...?

I've been told for a long time now, that I'm too "laid back"...good?...bad?...indifferent?...

You're too laid backed, I'm too high strung. We balance each other just right.

Huh? Hey Mikale, all the time!!! She means all of the time!! Ya got it now?

Oh, got it...

But I'm sure you have certain things that can upset you or push you to be not laid back at that time.
Like: if a 16 year old boy was climbing into your daughters bedroom window at night to see her, hummm.... I don't think you would remain laid back.
Well let me rephrase that, you could lay back after they take you to jail for beating up the boy. Right?

Lol Kook! We've got 15 rose bushes planted in front of our girls bedroom windows!

That's too fricking funny, poor Mikale, oh the joys that await him. Girls dating, OMG, it was brutal on my husband.

It's all relative, my friend. I imagine that if your house was on fire, you wouldn't heave a deep sigh, scratch yourself, then make a sandwich before moseying on down the hall to fetch the fire extinguisher. Would you?

I'm the same way. Laid back is usually good but it can hinder you too. I have no ambition or drive because I'm pretty content with my life the way things are. I figure that if I haven't already got it by now I don't really need it.

Laid back is the only way to be. What the heck is the point of being all up-tight about all sorts of meaningless non-sense??? There is a time and place for things, but there is never a time or place for being an up-tight fun cop :)

Thanks Naf, I've been told that a lot lately...Wonder if I'm getting too laid back lately...
Report as
Mikale, laid back is not lazy, it's our temperament on certain things. We all have things that will push us to the edge.
Report as
Ummm...why are we all the way back here?

Being high strung will kill a person. I've seen too many hot headed people turn bright red yelling looking like they are going to have a grabber. Why do you think so many people go to yoga or meditate. It's not because it's fun. It relaxes a person. That's what everybody strives to be. Laid back. Keep it up my friend.

It's the only way I know. I was told in a job interview yesterday, "Wow, you seem real laid back"... Hope it wasn't a bad thing...

Hummmm, you can't be totally laid back about everything? I'm sure there is something that can make you fly off the handle.

I think we all have our laid back times, and high strung times.
What's so funny, is with every couple, certain things tend to send each of us over the edge.
Maybe sitting in traffic won't bother your partner, but has you biting your nails chomping at the bit. We all have different levels of things that bother us, and our partner is going" like WTH is wrong with you". it's like Kuu says, we all balance each other to an extent.

Kookie, by "we balance each other out", do you mean on the inside of the car there is one person all calm and cool, being patient with the other drivers, and another person pulling their hair out over sitting in one spot, but on the outside of the car you only see a car that's leveled out between calm and crazy? Haha.

"Laid back" is usually good. "Too laid back" is probably a bad thing. But I don't agree that you're too laid back.
