A change in the relationship

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

You know that point in a doomed relationship when you suddenly realise your time together is limited?
But you're not ready to break up yet, and you think maybe the feeling will go away or something.
You can just tell you're not picturing your future with them, and you keep imagining what life will be like without them.
That's the point I'm at with meat and eggs and dairy. I don't have an exit strategy, I just find myself wanting to spend less and less time with them.
I will probably keep eating fish and probably the occasional wild animal (nothing farmed) but even then I might have to just take the plunge. Saying I'm 'mostly vegan' is easier than saying 'I'm vegan except for wild or ethically raised animals'. I think the idea of eating animals is going to be something I will give up.
But I have this last trip to the US. And there are things I LOVE to eat there.
I'll just have to have one last hurrah, then move on.
I can do this. I can be a better person.

    I know several who have gone totally vegan and seem to have no problems, even eating out they can usually stick to the plan. emoticon

    Best of luck to you. I tried - really hard - to stop eating animals. I love animals! I hate animal cruelty! I especially hate the unethical things big corporations do to animals to meet the "demand" side of supply and demand where meat is concerned. After 30 days, I caved. I just couldn't do it. I was eating way too many carbs - unhealthy carbs - and I was always hungry. Coming up with a complete protein from a non-animal source, just didn't do it for me. I'm sad that I failed. I really am. Maybe some day I'll try it again, but for now my body just "needs" the protein. Quite selfish of me - I know. I mostly just wanted to say - I fully support what you are about to do and I wish you the very best. Oh, and enjoy your visit to the US.
