Oft hope is born when all is forlorn
t’s hilarious how everyone has reacted to me telling them I am working on not eating meat. My boyfriend and mom didn’t believe me, my grandma is rudely skeptical about my reasoning. My sister asked a lot of questions and regretted the answers(in a sad but more informed kind of way). Everyone assumes I don’t know I’ll have to replace the things I’m no longer getting. I’ve spent the last 6 months(since I started my anxiety medication oddly) feeling bad every time I ate meat, and avoiding it when possible.. i’ve had a documentary set aside for almost that amount of time, because I knew as soon as i watched it that would be it, and it was. I put it off fearing the reaction I’d get from my family and friends. Now that’s fucked ..
I’ve said many times in my life I’d never stop eating meat. It feels good to be a hypocrite in this case though.
So far I’m proud of myself.
One thing I will make sure I teach my future children is being called a “girl” is never a bad thing. The earliest and seemingly most hamless use of sexism teaches little kids being a girl is low, especially below being a boy…. and everyone says it so off handedly.@4 days ago with 5 notes
Aaaand starting today I am making a conscious effort to never eat meat again.
Good luck Sarah
