Today I struggled. After a year of being vegan, I've realized I have no outlet for my vegan thoughts and feelings. I don't have any like-minded friends to discuss issues with or express my emotions and angers. I'm getting so fed up with meat eaters. I'm tired of constantly being told, "you need to eat some bacon", "I tried to be vegetarian for a day...", "I could never be vegan! I love cheese too much", or "But, don't you like chicken?". Meat eaters literally said all of these things to me just today! I know that I'm supposed to be able to take it. To be able to laugh these comments off as a joke. But I am just so tired of it! In my opinion: it's bullying. Gee, I tired to be an herbivore for 15 years but then decided I didn't want to unnecessarily abuse and kill animals. I just need someone in my life who I can agree with. Someone who shares my thoughts and feelings and builds on them. I know that this site is full of people who go through the exact same things daily, but an online friend honestly wouldn't be the same as someone I could see daily. I want someone I can go to after a long day and we can laugh about all the stupid things animal abusers said to us today. Someone who can cry with me in mourning of all the innocent animals and scream about how ****** up our society is. I just need a friend.
