How bout those Canucks?!?! For any non hockey fans, you can expect a lot of play off talk for the next while. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the Canucks WILL take the cup!
I wanted to get your guys opinion on a situation I constantly find myself facing at work. There is a girl at work who is not healthy, yet she likes to think that all of her choices are healthy, and openly speaks about them.
For example, she has about five 100 calorie snack packs a day, chocolate cookies that say “natural” on them, canned soup, Crystal Light….essentially no real food. Yet she cannot stop talking about all the healthy choices she is making by eating these things.
A very large part of me wants to speak up and tell her how happy I am she is trying to make healthy choices, but guide her to make natural choices. However I haven’t, because I don’t want to be preachy, and I don’t want to overstep boundaries. Because she isn’t asking me for the advice, do I give it?
I haven’t said anything because I don’t see it as my place. However I so badly want to provide information on better choices not only for her but also for the environment (don’t get me started on snack packs or anything that comes in way too much packaging).
My standpoint on advice is that if it isn’t asked for, don’t give it. However, when someone is flaunting their viewpoint and opinion around constantly, does that give another the right to speak up?
It’s not that I have a problem with what she puts in her body, or her as a person. She’s wonderful and really what she eats truly isn’t any of my business. But, the fact that she constantly states how healthy it is and my passion for real, natural, whole foods, I just feel inclined to say something. It would be no different than someone calling what I eat “hippy food” (I get that all the time. ALL the time).
What would you do? Is there an appropriate way to say something? Or just keep my mouth shut?
