Sudden realization surrounding veganism

Hey guys,

I was watching a video that talked about addiction and how we look at addiction the wrong way.

Long story short, it is massively important at how we spread this idea of veganism. Although I really believe it is the way to reducing unnecessary suffering to animals, the health of human beings and the environment, we have to realize that the bond between human beings is far far more important than we think. 

It is very difficult to navigate through this life alone. Being a loner is very overrated and isolating yourself from people in general is unhealthy. You could have the best diet, you can have a massive heart and you can have the perfect exercise routine but you will never get there if you don't have a healthy relationship with other people. 

I was thinking about this when I was running a half marathon and then cycling another 26 miles back to my house. I have the best diet for myself. I sleep more than 8 hours a day. I drink water. I pee a lot. I shit a lot. I exercise daily. I run to work. However I can't help to think that something is missing. I don't have a lot of friends who do the same things as I do. And the people who do are usually way too busy to even have the time of day to just 'chill out'. And that kind of depresses me. Prior to becoming vegan I had a life full of friends who I can just talk and do things together. We've gone through ups and downs and seen the worst from each other. Now it's just really hard for us to even connect about anything ever. Maybe it's them, maybe it's just me. 

And then I started to think about veganism and how we spread the message. We tend to attack other people and separate them from us. We shame other people because of their lifestyle, because we are angry at how they treat animals, and how they approach health and nutrition. I get it. It've very frustrating to tell your friends and family about veganism. Could we blame them though? No matter how much we want to think that this lifestyle is the best for humanity, socially in the large scale humans bond over food. We talk about that restaurants who have the best burgers and we celebrate our life through food.

But what if the answer is not to shame them and further separate them from veganism? What if the answer is to create a loving atmosphere? What if the answer is really to be vulnerable to them? 

I have to do this by myself and see what I can achieve. Because really. It's hard. And it's easier for someone to go back to eating animal products when they couldn't bond socially connect and bond with other people.

We'll see though
