- A friend of mine is always complaining about his weight and the fact that nothing he does seems to make any difference. He maintains a very active presence on social media and with every post there seems to be a buffet of junk food surrounding him. Soda, cakes, cookies, doughnuts, chips, grease, fat.
- A man I know constantly bemoans his unhappy marriage. He prattles on about how he has done everything he can think of to make things better, yet every single time he mentions his wife it is with nastiness and harsh words. He never speaks of her with fondness or pride or respect.
- A colleague at work recently had a quintuple heart bypass. His major contributing factors were that he was severely overweight and smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. Six months after his surgery, he has made no changes in his lifestyle.
- A junior co-worker of mine is worried about getting a permanent position in his field. Yet he seems to arrive late and leave early every day and seems completely unengaged when he is at work.
