30 Bananas a Day!

When you feel like you can't connect to anyone in your life

Okay, so I haven't been on here for a while, but short story I found out what was wrong with me and I'm in the process of untwisting bowels and such and switched to eating raw again and feeling so much more motivated.

But! That's not the point of this haha

Lately, well, okay. More like my whole life, but now more than ever, I feel like I'm drifting away from every single person in my life. No one here shares my views on things other than my mom, my friends "support" my healing process but don't understand it at all (everyone I am close with eats at fast food places, thinks being vegan is impossible for them, etc.. there has been more than one time where I have brought a smoothie to some restaurant because I'm simply not interested in eating there) and especially now that I finally got back on track, finally got help with the real cause of my digestive problems, and finally am more motivated than ever to create beautiful recipes and start my life in a new province studying nutrition, my friends are just not appealing to me at all. They don't get it, they don't understand why I don't want to go out anymore, or stay up all night, or sit with them while they all eat horribly and such, (and also I'm an introvert, but when I was sick I was hanging out with them so much more because I just didn't know what was wrong with me so my passion for healing just went on hiatus) and I can never, ever talk about nutrition to them because no one gets it, or at least, no one finds it interesting, truly. 

The past few days have been really bad with family issues, so much stress, drama, missed school and work, feeling sick (now recovering) but I just.. I just don't want to explain this to any of my friends. They all think I'm just "sick" and it's "because I'm vegan"... no. That's the one thing that is keeping me alive. But I just don't feel connected anymore, simply want to move, graduate, meet new people with the same views as me (in 3 months we will be! to a place full of fruit and vegans.. omg so excited) but I can't seem to be motivated to stay super happy and excited with them for the next few months when I'm just.. not.

ANYWAY the point of this lol is, do you ever feel drained when you have no one in your life who understands being vegan, I mean friend wise? I can't wait to move and pursue my passion but for the mean time, I want to focus on healing and tons of fruit but everyone seems to get the wrong idea.

Omg i feel exactly the same way!!!!!!  Ever since i went vegan, or considered going vegan(which has not been that long), nutrition and being healthy and such has been mostly all that i want to talk about, but none of my friends seem to care.  They all just eat how they were trained to eat their entire lives, and they can't really relate to how excited i am about my new lifestyle.  When I bring up the subject of vegan and nutrition and stuff, they support me in my transition of going vegan, but they change the subject rather quickly because they can't relate with their own experiences.  It is rather depressing.

Stick to your guns! I started a new job in December and got into lots of discussions with my coworkers about Veganism (very prickly discussions,) but I stuck to my guns and now my coworkers are eating more and more fruit all the time. One guy who used to swear against tofu finally tried the tofu banh mi from the nearby Vietnamese cafe, and he loved it! 

Intellectuals are going to be alone for most of their life, so get used to it! It just makes meeting people who know what's up that much better! And don't give up on folks. Veganism is about love and positivity. So set a good example, and they just might come around.

actually as a matter of fact that does NOT, AT ALL have to do with vegan issues! its about honesty and true love. If ur friends actually cared and loved u they wouldn't give an ish about what u eat or do, lol! I understand u soo much, hey I'm here for u, I'm new on here too we will do this together! according to the entire world (my world actually) I'm considered a vegetable or a fruit, lol. everyone is school, the gym and even my parents think I'm stupid! my parents are hurting my feelings a lot lately and u know what, as long as U know that ur doing the right thing than thats ur treasure, basically all u need.

From a health perspective, I couldn't care less what other people  do or put in their bodies. But I have a HUGE issue with people who think it's ok to kill animals. ......which is most people.

I'm expecting we can all relate to this a bit... I get fed up with being considered a weirdo and don't want to have to argue my point everytime someone gets aggressive about what I eat. Which is surprisingly often! As you go through life you change and sometimes you find you have nothing left in common with your old friends. I appreciate that as an introvert it's hard to make new friends, but I think maybe you should try to find new people who share some of your values. Or at least who will let you be who you want to be without question.
Don't give up though. There are many amazing things and people and experiences out there to be had. You are just going through a transition period. You will come out the other side to a place where you're happy and surrounded by positive people. In the meantime, there are tons of people on here who 'get it'. :-)

Yes I can related. All of my old friends, eat crap, do drugs all day and party for days without sleeping. I can't and won't be part of that anymore. First this was hard, I blamed myself. Now I feel better then ever not having these people in my life again. Conversations just got so draining, all they can talk about it how much they drink, of when the next party is going to be. I've just accepted I can't live like that anymore, and after I did that I could finally focus on healing my body. Best descision ever. Anyways none of these people accepted the new me, they only trying to push me to drink again en stay up all night. I'm sober now 3 years after alcohol problems of 15 years. I'll never drink again.
