Going out to eat with people that don’t understand your lifestyle choices can be difficult. I will in no way act like I’ve been vegan or vegetarian for years or something–because that would be a lie–but I find it really frustrating to be hanging out with people and getting told I’m crazy for choosing to better my life and the lives of others by removing that stuff from my diet.

We went to a chinese restaurant and I went up with one one of my peoples and it kind of went like this:

“Oh! Coconut Shrimp! I love this so much!”

“I wouldn’t know. I don’t eat meat.”

“I couldn’t do that.”

That’s not so bad, right?

But being called crazy is. Yes. It’s not a sign of mental illness if you choose to remove animal products from your foods. Seriously. I’m sometimes so frustrated by that for even being all, “I’m vegetarian.”

This could be more coherent, but I’m exhausted. And need sleep. If you don’t understand what is being said, ask me again later and perhaps I could make it clearer.
