Smile Hi Everyone 😸

Hello! I'm doing this backwards, as I have already posted on other forums, but I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been reading these forums for a while now, and wanted to interact with a vegan community. It's really hard to find other vegans or get advice, so here I am.
I am a pacifist and I try not to judge anyone. I really want to do something positive in my life, no matter how big or small it seems. I am also very connected to nature and I love the beach! I also have a thing for protecting and saving the oceans. I clean up the beach as volunteer work, it feels good knowing that I did something good for the fish! I only know one other vegan in my life, only dietary, and two vegetarians. I consider myself an ethical vegan and environmentalist. I hope to get good advice and connect here! Thanks!

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

Hello again, and thank you for your tremendous support on this site! I find it so relieving to finally interact with you all, especially since I do not know too many vegans/vegetarians. Unfortunately, my family is not vegan nor vegetarian, and they have never really been supportive. Ever since I was in high school, they have been convinced that I was "rebelling" or doing something unhealthy for my diet. They took me to a doctor and he said I was fine, and he's great because to this day he's still my doctor and I have a dietitian there too! They both helped me become a healthy vegan, and I never looked back on my diet. Sadly, my family has ever since treated me differently, and a few have even stopped calling or inviting me to events. I'll probably ask in another post if anyone else has struggled with a similar situation.

Anyways, thanks again for your kind wishes!

Hi UKvege and welcome! I'm sorry about your family. That's really a shame that they treat you so terribly. I've been very fortunate though it took my family a while to get used to the idea. It's great to have places like this to come to where others understand and share your compassion. Glad to have you here!

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
