I am really depressed today. A while ago I had joined this board and told people that my new business was fully vegan.. and it was.. but than my partner really wanted to sell her pearls and other things in our jewelry that wasnt vegan. She is not a vegan. Its her business too so we decided to compromise and I do the alternative jewelry and stuff which is all vegan.. and most of our stuff is vegan and animal friendly but now I look like a terrible person and a hypocrite and I know I will get completely crucified by my friends and family and others who will feel mislead. I had to change everything that I said and I feel very badly now. I feel so bad right now. I spent all yesterday crying and I dont want friends to be angry with me. I am doing all that I can do to live up to my values and I wont have anything to do with the non veggie part of our business.

You might have checked it out a while ago... when I posted it on the board its called

I was so depressed that I didnt talk to my friends or anyone for a while. I feel bad though and I dont want my parnter to feel badly.

well, a business that's vegan friendly is better than one that isn't. Like those restaurants that provide vegan options on their regular menu. Cheer up and don't beat yourself up. We can only do the best that we can do, life isn't perfect.

i think you're being silly.

you offer many vegan products and you can identify which products are vegan and which are not. it's not that difficult and people won't feel mislead. most people understand that when you have a business partner, you have to do what is right for both parties.
