Told friends on Facebook my fiancÃ© and I went vegan. We absolutely love it, we have so much energy we feel so good. Leave it to them to be so discouraging and closed minded. I thought a lot of people would be supportive, but I live in such a small town people are so about their ways.. ðŸ˜” feeling very down, but wont let that stop me.
Grace Morton: Its happened to a lot of us. Sorry, it doesnt get much easier but you learn to deal with it better the longer you stuck with it.Best advice, dont let someone drag you into a fight
Eli Morgan: Thank you so much.
Erick Blair: I know its so bizarre how unsupportive ppl can be, my theory is that its less about you and more about them. They somehow feel you are threatening their status quo just by changing your ways
Eli Morgan: You are absolutely right.
Kaden Schwartz: This
Karla Andrews: Kudos to yall! Dont mind the haters. Luckily my FB friends and family havent given me slack, but if they did my blockðŸ™…ðŸ¾â€â™€ï¸ game real strongðŸ’ªðŸ‹ðŸ¾â€â™€ï¸. I dont accept any negativity
Eli Morgan: My block game will become strong soon if people dont give me any slack.
Karla Andrews: Yeah Id make a post telling people keep their negative comments to themselves, & if they cant feel free to unfriend you. If they choose to stay friends w/ you keep scrolling by
Skye Blake: I live in a small town too. I got weird looks and teasing at first. Then as i got healthier and lost weight i started getting questions they were actually curious about. I got people who came to my work just to ask me what changes i noticed and stuff. Dont speak the change, be the change, and youll get people interested.
Eli Morgan: Thank you for the amazing advice !
Skye Blake: I hope it works for you! Part of it too is only answer what they ask. The first couple people i talked too much once they asked and scared them off lmao.
Landon Hale: People are idiots mostly, because they are stupid it doesnt mean you have to be stupid too. Do what you do! You are on the right road! And f*** everyone ðŸ˜œ

Adrian Moody: Thank you both for being vegan! The rewards will keep coming!
Emilia Dixon: Small towns can nurture small minds who say small things. The huge world thanks you for going vegan and helping the planet, the animals and your own body ðŸ™ðŸ»

Kennedy Obrien: Day 1 of your new magnificent life! Congratulations! Dont let the naysayers deter you. Living vegan is the best decision of my life and no one could ever convince me otherwise. Its just THAT great. Once you get through the initial adjustment and learning curve, Im sure you will feel the same. Dont give up! One day at a time, be kind to yourself, know that we all make slip ups with reading food labels and such, dont beat yourself up, just keep learning. You got this!

Amelia Harrison: I really dont understand why people are negative about it. Its hurting nobody else! I use religion as an example if I get any crap from anyone. Certain religions are vegetarian or dont eat some meats and no one tells them theyre ridiculous and as far as Im concerned, religion is as much of a choice as anything else and they dont eat the things because of beliefs – vegans are vegans because of their beliefs too.
Kennedy Obrien: People are negative about it because it reflects back to them the fact that they are participating in animal abuse by funding the meat, dairy and egg industry. If a person can go vegan for ethical reasons (not for allergies or forced through religi…See more
