Just wanted to share this. Whenever people are faced with truth and/ or change, this tends to be the progression of reaction to a new idea. Knowing that this is just a normal human reaction helps me feel less frustrated. I used to be a huge meat and cheese eater but when I decided to really work on myself, and to create a deeper spiritual connection, I felt "awake" as the Buddhists would say. A lot of people know in the back of their minds that the meat and dairy they eat supports massive unspeakable cruelty, but they choose not to think about it bc A) it's upsetting, B) it's not the story the meat and dairy industries feed us (lies) and C) thinking about it would require a change is hard for people. But once my eyes were open to the truth, I realized I had to make changes in my life. I still see bacon or a burger or fried chicken and think, "that looks/ smells delicious" but my animalistic senses don't rule me anymore. My secondary thought is always the truth that that meat or cheese came from insane suffering. There is no free range. Cage free does not mean more space. Grass fed does not mean they were treated nicely, farm raised is a marketing term. If we all would wake up, we could change these horrible practices. Your dollar decides.
