Thanks for your replies everyone.
When I was lectured on how I was now too skinny, I just sat there. She continued to explain how I should be using an abundance of oil in my cooking and stop eating so many fruits. Oh, and that I essentially don't look good physically, because I am vegan. I didn't say anything, and maybe I should have. But I know at that moment, I really didn't want to stir anything up, because sometimes, when you give that moment for someone just to throw in their two cents, they feel like they made a huge accomplishment or something. Like, they are happy to let out their opinion. I just find that everyone has their own thoughts on what 'healthy' is, and without a doubt, they are quick to tell me their opinion and thoughts on it, even though I have yet to actually inquire. In fact, the topic hasn't even been brought up, but it just randomly comes out of thin air. To be honest though, I can see that individuals may just be curious as to why I do what I do, because eliminating meat and dairy is still 'that radical'.
At the same time though, it does make me question just a little as to what I find healthy. It makes me feel like a zombie when I often crave fresh fruits and vegetables. Should I be wanting a basket of french fries and a slice of pizza instead? Hum.
I think I'm too emotional of a person. And I take things personally quite easily, which is something I definitely need to work on. During my previous encounters with others attacking the way I eat, I basically wasn't prepared and actually didn't expect to be questioned and put on the spot to justify my choice. Lack of preparation on my part, because I guess I should have known. Then again, eating the way I do has become really, second-nature to me. It's what I do, because it is important to me. And now, I just simply do what I do. It's just that it can be exhausting when I feel as though I need to justify why I do what I do, when really, it all comes down to dietary choice. The simple choice to eat certain foods and refrain from others. But it's like the end of the world.
