Ah, I’m still vegetarian and vegan at least 3 days of the week, it’s hard being around 100% meat eaters or exception-ists (as in people who mainly eat vegetarian but still consume meet once in a while, gravy, seafood, eggs)
But what is hard is that most of the people whom surround me are not vegan or vegetarians and i simply have accepted that, which ive noticed online people on vegan sites hate for example other vegans whom are different (i.e. high fat, low fat, 80/10/10, raw, raw till 4, frutarians) But personally i just don’t hate people (rather dislike two people of which i don’t even talk to) so below i came up with a list of people or things that surround me that aren’t vegan and that i have accepted this, and my ultimate goal is to find friendships that are vegan or vegetarian.
What I have accepted:
-My friends eat meat (except for 1, she eats a hot dog once a year though haha Kim 🙂 but is vegetarian)
-My boyfriend eats meat
-People I live with eat meat
-Coworkers eat meat
-No restaurants surve vegan meals in Huntingdon
What I can change:
– Find friends who are vegan and vegetarian and accept them into my circle of happiness
– only hopefully influence my boyfriend- can’t change him though. It is tough being two different people, living two different lifestyles and sharing an intimate relationship. my boyfriend has practically been the same guy for the last 4 years and me myself I’ve changed or reinvented myself at least 4 times in the last 4 years.
-Move into my own vegan home, where no harm is done to any animal
-Start out sourcing for far vegan restaurants in Montreal or just never eat out and save $$$$
and as for my coworkers (excluding k.) that really is not an issue it was just a point as to whom surrounds me that is not similar in lifestyles to me. I was simply just listing people, thus being i mean no offence to anyone whom eats meat i listed yous for example purposes.
Also a few other plans for when i have my own home. veggies and fruits EVERYWHERERERERERERESSSSSSSS 🙂
organic and eco-friendliness
positivity and happiness
fitness and yoga.
all in all better things for me, my soul, the environment, and for anyone around me. ( what do i mean for anyone around me ? you know when you walk down the street and the guy in front of you is smoking and you get a big lung full of his nasty second hand smoke ? well no one around me will suffer from my second hand smoke or chemicals or litter(because i don’t smoke and don’t litter and avoid using chemicals that are toxic) – i do pollute because i fart and drive a car haha- but most of the things i do and plan on doing will better earth in some way or form.
what have you done today to better yourself or planet earth ?
do you think eating meat is killing ?
What do you agree or disagree with ?
lastly, have any advice fellow vegans/vegetarians ?
