|Energetic, yet reserved kittens.|
Today someone told a good friend of mine "you have a lot of energy" which lead us into a huge discussion.
Is telling someone that they have a lot of energy positive or negative? Ultimately, like everything else in the world, I think it depends on tone. This could be said snarkily and sarcastically or it could be said in fascination and admiration.
Here's where we landed:
- One for insult
- One friend brought up the point that saying it can make a person seem immature and/or negative
- I said that even without the intention, it often ends up belittling or condescending to a person
- One friend thinks it's indifferent. She argues that it was merely an observation.
What do you think? Roll it around a little. Use it in different situations How does it sound now? Kinda weird right? Happy Monday to those with varying degrees of energy!
