Protecting the environment from all sorts of harm is never a bad thing. In fact, it is the right thing to do. A lot of people do this and a huge majority does it a little bit extreme.
These people are carborexics. They are overly obsessed with the carbon footprints they leave behind.
A good example of a carborexic is a person who is so bent at sticking to his diet or green practice that it becomes a hindrance for him to meaningfully connect with the people around him.
Do you know someone who would pass up a neighbor’s invitation of barbecue night because he thinks the food is too unhealthy for him? You may also have a friend who would rather skip a meal with the gang because she didn’t bring her healthy food with her.
Most people start a diet to boost their well-being, but if it limits your ability to go out into the world and interact with others it may be doing more harm than good.
If you have recently started a diet, whether it involves healthier eating or greening your house, you may want to be conscious of how it is impacting you and those around you. Is it taking precedence over everything else? Is it getting in the way of your ability to do a good job at work? Are you on a diet that is affecting your work or your relationships? Are there things you can change to be less strict so you can live more harmoniously with those around you?
