When you go to the grocery store, and almost all the items contain animal products, it amazes me how people just dont realize how we're overexploiting animals.
Dont people think- "Wow, there's a lot of animal products here, I wonder how theres so much?"
1 Egg carton seems like a lot to me, the length it must of took to get those 12 eggs... so imagine hundreds of carton that supermarkets are carrying, and thousands weekly that are being delivered.
I seriously don't get how anyone isnt vegan, and why people wish to remain ignorant...
My friend is logical person, but says each time I mention being vegan "I just dont want to change"
I'm like, mate you have 2 dogs, a cat, and others, yet every meal you eat contains some part of an animal.
Seriously finding it a hard time having friends that arent vegan, and continue my relationship with them...is that just me?
Thanks for starting this thread John...It is interesting to read others perspectives and to know that there is other people out there who feel as you do :)
I totally relate. As a mother myself the whole babies being ripped away from their mothers thing just makes me want to cry. So seeing other mothers drinking milk and such i just want to scream at them. Fair enough some of them dont know, like i didnt realise before i became vegan. But some do and they still continue.
i just dont get it. Knowing how much i f**king love my daughter i feel such an insane amount of empathy to theres animals that i physically cry for them.
It's horrible but sometimes i just feel so overwhelmed with sympathy and empathy for them that i feel it in my gut. the truth haunts me and i just dont know what to do.
I'm constantly getting into debates about it but sometimes i just have to say to the person that i need a break from thinking about it because it gets me so emotional.
I wish i had more vegan friends i could chat about this stuff to. noone seems to understand how sick and wrong it is and that in itself is making me feel quite isolated.
