After I posted my "Does BBQ Cause Cancer" video on my personal facebook page I noticed my friend number starting to drop. Have you experienced the same thing after going vegan?
My video on this subject:
My Does BBQ Cause Cancer video:
You will lose friends when you go vegan.
You will lose friends when you become more successful than others.
You will lose friends when you become more honest with others.
Then you will look back and realize they were never ever friends at all. Just acquaintances.
And you will meet like-minded people who are worthy of being friends with.
I'm new to this life-style having found you guys on the internet, which inspired me to make the change overnight. I'm emotionally finally at peace with myself choosing a cruelty-free way to live my life and improve my health as a bonus. You and Freelee are inspirational. Thank you for shining a light and spreading the word. You are saving the animals, the planet and helping people take ownership of their health by exposing all the mis-information regarding nutrition that exists. Love that you guys are so into exercise as that's the other part of the jigsaw to optimum health. Good on ya ;))
Woah, I couldn't agree more.
I think that people stop being friend not because someone made a decision to become vegan but because a lifestyle and mindset shift happens, so people start existing in different worlds.
These are all great responses, and ya they were only acquaintances after all. I think a lot of these people don't want to be reminded of the truth and keep their blinders on and I keep reminding them so poof I'm off their list.
Yes, I have. And I, too, have dropped so-called friends because I literally cannot listen to their stupid bacon jokes, nor do I want to date a man who still eats animals.
I hemmed and hawed on that one for years, but I've finally drawn a vegan line in the sand and I'm completely fine with it--even though I suspect I just shaved my dating pool down to almost nothing here in the Midwest.
I love giving blow jobs, love to swallow, and I'd REALLY prefer him to not taste of cruelty and ignorance.
Vegans Taste Better.
Vegan women taste better too ;-)
HAHA TMI maybe but all correct nonetheless.
Look but don't touch (meat eaters) can be frustrating right ;-)
Add me let's chat :D
I've never surrounded myself with people that would give a darn what I ate. If your friends can't support you in anything you do, they're no friend at all.
They are just enablers of lack mentality.
