Even after nearly 4 years, I still have cravings for certain non-vegan foods and sometimes question whether or not I want to be a vegan. I find myself resenting the “vegan” label and beat myself up when I don’t live up to what I “think” a vegan is.
After talking (and eating) with a couple of my vegan friends a couple of weeks ago, I realize that I’m not alone with some of my food issues. Spending quality time with my vegan friends really helped me gain new perspective. I can’t stress enough the importance of making your own small vegan community of friends to vent and spend time with.
One of my goals this year, is to be more open about who I am and what I feel. It’s uncomfortable and sometimes I think about backlash from the vegan police, but I’m going to push forward anyway.
The only way I can grow, help people, and move forward in this lifestyle is by being okay with my decisions and by willing to do whatever I can to improve.
