Well, when I was on Deviant Art, I was reading one of Vegan Freak's journals (hope you don't mind me mentioning you!) and she has a really awesome life with vegan friends and a vegan boy friend and she gets to go leafleting and to protests and what not (sorry Cat - hope you don't mind me talking about you too much!) and it occured to me that I've never met another vegan in real life and I've never met anyone else who is passionate about animal rights and what not. So lately, I've been a bit sad that I haven't got someone to talk to/do stuff with. Anyone else in the same situation? What do you guys do?
hehe no problem mentioning me =]
The thing is, ive tried very hard to surround myself with like minded people. Even createign like minded people. My boyfriend was never vegan, he was the biggest meat eater i knew when i met him. My best friend was never vegan, I inspired and helped her turn. The firs friend i met that was vegetarian was vegan zombie. My Other friends, like biophiliac, blake, zac and max..theyre all vego due to some form of influence and help from me
Try to talk to your friends and family about your ethics, explain what it means to you, have a serious conversation about it. Slowly work you way in and try to get to their emotions..
Not everyone is so easy to turn, It takes time. But its possible with many people
Id be happy to hang out with you if you lived here lol xD
And btw, im sorry i made you feel bad...>.< I didnt mean too..:C
Most of the time, im not that happy lol..I get very angry and upset about friends that arent vego..lol. I was just having a random good day lol
