She can be head strong at times, but the fact she can't cook for herself is a real problem. We work in a fast food place and she either works or is stuck up stairs where there is no kitchen. So my dad does all the cooking for her and she eats what she is givin. Which usually is a very meaty dish.
Our determination to do things tend to end when our parents disagree with the idea. The only way I am able to stay a vegan is because I can cook for myself and I can buy my own things to eat.
My whole family will be making snide comment and all trying to cheat her into eating meat if she turned veggie, when it's family gatherings. I don't think she would be able to handle the things my family throw at me sometimes. She's can be sensitive at times.
oh my, that's horrible. Me, personally, I would fight for what I believe in - even if it did mean going hungry or upsetting my parents. Maybe that's not for everyone and I don't want to promote disobedience but I am just stubborn >.<
