maybe you dont want to come to easter dinner then hess.
@mortlockmary of course we’ll be at Easter. But it will be hard being around meat. I wish it wasn’t, but it is. I once ate meat, but now I don’t. And I’m not going to ever be comfortable with it again. So we’ll have our vegan meal and enjoy peoples company, but the meat part won’t be easy... After 41 years, eating meat because it’s all I’ve ever known, and it’s tradition - now almost two years later, it’s tough to completely have a different viewpoint on food than almost everyone else. I struggle with it daily, smelling people’s lunches, hearing about peoples dinner plans, commercials for meat on tv, in every commercial break. It’s difficult. I don’t know what else to do than tactfully try to sit separately so I don’t have to think about it. If I don’t make other people aware that their choices are harming others, then the violence will never stop. I have over 500 people that see my posts, and information getting out may eventually help people see the truth. I love you mom. Easter is a family tradition, but the food part doesn’t have to be the traditional part - It’s spending time with family and loved ones. I will enjoy the company as much as ever, but the meal part will be emotional for me💔
