Here’s the thing. I live in a country (Philippines) where millions of people live in excruciating poverty but I’m fussy about what I eat. I like organic fruit and vegetables. I like a small amount of grass fed meat. I like sustainably harvested fish. I don’t like sugar and salt being added to my food. I have choices that so many do not and I really feel the responsibility to make those choices count in both my work and home lives. I definitely suffer from analysis paralysis sometimes!
I tell myself it’s better for this country (and others) if I support organic farmers. I truly believe that but nevertheless some days it just feels like I’m being a princess ….
What choices do you make? I’ll keep you posted about mine. Endless intellectual guilt doesn’t help anyone but I’m hoping my choices and actions will.
