Okay, so, it’s happening. Don’t panic. Just let it.
If you’re on YouTube I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of “What I Ate Today As A Vegan” videos and “VEGAN MUKBANG” videos, celebrities promoting Veganism, it’s everywhere. It may seem like a trend that some are secretly hoping will fade soon, but, in my honest opinion, Veganism ain’t going nowhere baby!
Here’s why: People ACTUALLY enjoy it! ‘WOW! REALLY?’ YES! It’s actually enjoyable! Meat eaters and fast food lovers look at vegans as tortured, controlling, self-punishing, extreme dieters, self-righteous, or just weird. And in my case, 1 of those stereotypes are correct. I’m extremely weird. I’m a Virgo, can’t really help it. More often than not, I love being vegan, the only downsides is having to work a little harder to get good, clean food at good prices. Also, the inevitable naysayers that suddenly become doctors when I say that I’m vegan. “Oh, you’re gonna die, you can’t survive on a vegan diet.” My response is always, “Lord help us, take me now Lord!”
You may think simply directing those people to some well researched articles will do the trick, well DON’T BOTHER! Most naysayers will try to debunk even THE MOST well researched information that exists to continue with their lifestyle. Which is the funny part, because when I announce that I’m vegan, I never follow with “you should try it too,” I simply leave it as a statement for my dietary preference. But the need is still there to defend why they aren’t vegan, as if I’m the police asking about drugs. Hey, it’s cool! Not everyone has to be a Vegan, do your own thing, life is too short to follow trends. I don’t shame others for eating animal products, because not long ago, I was having cereal and milk for breakfast, getting sick and having it for breakfast again. This went on for years, insanity, doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome. It never once occurred to me that maybe I couldn’t digest milk properly because I’m not a baby COW… and perhaps I should switch to something yummier that makes me feel better like vanilla flavored almond milk! GASP! Which is so good! It’s so much better than cow pus juice! Plus it won’t give you acne or lethargy. Again… no shame.
Another thing I seem to come across and have personally experienced, is the feeling of compassion. I swear, it’s the craziest thing. Once you’re not consuming animals, you suddenly can’t bare to harm a soul! I found myself avoiding killing spiders…SPIDERS! MY SWORN ENEMY! I could no longer harm them, if I did, I would be near tears. I would get this feeling of deep shame and disappointment. The reason is, or the scientific theory of Kabreion, moi, and also research done by DOCTORS, is the karmic debt that comes with causing harm to animals is present when when you consume animals that experienced a horrible life and death. When animals are inhumanely finished for our food source, the universe sees to it that consequences are given. It’s been shown that meat eaters tend to be more aggressive than vegans, not in ALL cases, but it’s still very significant.
Consuming animal products aren’t taboo in my book, however, I still feel if we’re going to use living things as our food source, something that’s so essential to life, then what’s SO wrong with art least being humane about it? It says a lot about us as a species, how we treat our animals. Pigs show emotion, chickens, and cows show emotion. There’s nothing different from eating a dog or a pig except your perspective. Have you ever interacted with a pet pig??? They are smart as s***! They can be trained and play with you! It’s just some FOOD for thought… see what I did there? Hehe okay I’ll leave now. Bye.
At the end of the day guys, it’s your life. Judging by the looks of our planet… you might just wanna live it up immediately and be the best version if yourself. Peace be with you all. Namaste
