Your Gameplan to beat self-doubt and peer pressure.
Being in the minority can be isolating…
And feeling isolated can make you feel defensive…
But being vegan or plant-based isn't a defensive position, it's offense.
After having an incredible experience a few weeks ago (see image below) I’ve stopped justifying, defending, arguing or explaining my lifestyle.
I’ve also stopped preemptively apologizing for being a burden or calling myself “weird.”
#1 My self-care is not a burden.
#2 Nothing about what I do or how I live is “weird.” It may not be someone else’s choice or comfort, but that does not make it “abnormal” or “inferior” or a problem for me.
