I had been a vegetarian for about a year, and then I went back to eating meat just recently, but not to the extent where it is a daily thing. In fact, looking back, it was just once or twice in a week that I would even consume meat. But after thinking about my choices, I decided that eating meat really wasn't for me. Not only did I feel disgusted with myself, but my stomach would not be feeling good either.
The reason why I went back to consuming meat, was because well, I was tired of people constantly on my neck about my choices. Every time I hung out with my best friend, she would be asking me why, why and why. And my parents followed the idea that I needed meat to survive. Meat was essential. Oh, and I think my downfall would be spring rolls. Either way, would it be wrong for me to be a vegetarian secretively?
For me, I dislike it when vegetarians advocate to others about their choices and pressure others to eat like them. I find that each person is entitled to their own choices regardless. Anyhow, I don't want my parents at my neck about eating meat. And what irked me when I did go back to eating meat (it was just fish and tuna), my relatives were quick to criticize me in that they said, "Why are you eating meat now?" And they gave me that judgemental look as they were eating the carcass of a cow and licking their chopsticks. For me, why do my choices matter, as when I did not consume meat, I didn't yell at them or even talk to them about their consumption of animal flesh.
