For me, it was dealing with the feeling that no one understood me, since I had zero vegetarian friends.
Posted by Umapuma at 10/08/14 12:38:30I have a tough time listening to friends, family and colleagues talk about favorite meat and cheese recipes, any old makeup (as opposed to cruelty free) or even leather items. I used to be the same way though, happily coloring my hair with Loreal while grilling cheeseburgers in my new leather boots. It was easier back then to be ignorant. I really wish I had known and cared sooner. I really wish others knew and cared today. I don't want to be aggressive but I do want to be an activist. For now I'll just try to be a good example and help animals where I can.

Shirts with messages that make the reader want to ask a question. I've always wanted a shirt that says, "I have four reasons for being a vegan". If only an occasional person asks what your reasons are, your effort is worthwhile...but be ready to support your views with logic and facts.
