I would love to make friends within this lifestyle and find support. I'm a 22yr fine art sculpture student at University who has been vegan for 1 3/4 years now :D never felt better or happier :D however my happiness often gets questioned and bashed by my parents. They think I am 'stupid' 'doing myself harm' 'going to die' etc also that I'm being tricked by fakes yet when they see me happy and doing great they don't take notice.
I feel very alone in this but I do not want to fail because this is who we are and what we are meant to eat! I constantly get told by my mum "life isn't worth living if you're depriving yourself of nice things to eat and just eating fruit and veg" Then I get yelled at and bashed on when I reply with "you don't deprive yourself of anything if you don't miss it or need it. All my food is yummy...why else do you think I don't want to eat anything else plus I do not want to be apart of animal cruelty."
Anyways I could babble on more and more but I don't want to bore you all. I have been apart (a silent part) of this forum and site yet have not fully delved into the workings of it yet until now.
Please drop by and say hey :) I might start to upload my art works of animals to this? not too sure :P
Peace, free hugs, give a banana and suck a persimmon :D
