I need to start being active again… school is just getting in the way. Can’t wait for summer and a lighter schedule!
The practical parts of being vegan are not difficult at all. What is difficult is being hyper aware of the suffering and cruelty that happens to nonhuman animals every moment of every day and watching those we love being indifferent at best and hostile at worst. Regardless of those difficulties, being vegan is really the only choice, because it’s about other animals and not about ourselves.
I dislike when people say “I want one” or “I want it” in reference to an animal especially cute or exotic animals. It just makes me think how humans want to own everything and treat living creatures as possessions that serve the purpose of satisfying their selfish desires.
