Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
Hi my name is Natasha and I'm 31 years old. When I was about 20/21 I was a vegan for about a year and vegetarian for about 2 years. It was really hard on me though because people were REALLY not supportive. They would always rag on me and make fun of me. Tell me that I was going against God's principles. You would think that after doing it so long that they would stop but I was living with my parents at the time and it was really just constant. So I went on years eating meat. Always feeling terrible about it. Had spurts of going vegetarian again for about a month or 2 but could never stick to it because of all the negativity in my life. I really want to do it though, because I'm tired of being a hypocrite and I'm tired of letting others dictate what truly makes me happy just because they don't want me to be different from them. I'm hoping to find some support here, that way I don't feel completely alone on this journey.
