some of my family is coming tomorrow from out of state to have lunch. i offered to cook something and my mother and grandmother were like "uh, no". they think all the stuff i eat is weird. so now they're making tacos (aka hamburger meat and cheese in a shell) and banana pudding (milk and butter totally ruining bananas). so now what am i gonna eat? i'd prefer that my veganism not be a topic of conversation b/c i know no one will be on my side of the issue but me. it's really tearing my nerves up. what can i do?
Be proud! You're doing a good thing! You sound like you're ashamed and it's others that should be. Don't feel guilty for not causing suffering.
you're so right. i guess i feel a little ashamed around people who thinks that it's stupid or weird. i say i don't care what people think about me, and i really don't, i just would rather it not come up. :/
