I have no one supporting me through veganism. Everyone in my family is omnivores. My mom tries to get me to stop being vegan all the time. I'm constantly judged for being vegan too. Why can't they just be supportive and happy for me? I like being vegan. It makes me happy, you know?
I know exactly what you mean. People spend more time on trying to find reasons against veganism than they spend on trying to find reasons against eating animal products. Most of them feel personally offended because veganism tells them their morals are wrong. They seemingly can not cope with that.
My family pisses me off a lot, as well. They consider me too extreme and have even compared me to fascists and racists because I’m quite militant from time to time. But being militant is, on my opinion, totally fine, because vegans fight for freedom.
I am so much happier since I am vegan, I can totally understand you. And all those stupid comments are the only disadvantage. It might be very hard, but never give up. And don’t forget, you’re the one who is right and they’re the ones who are wrong! Keep that in mind, even if you’re the only one who’s aware of it.
