Well said! I've been veggie since I was 5, that was pretty much accepted but then aged 16 (nearly 2 years ago) I decided to go vegan, and I told my family that I'd quit drinking aged 14 (because they're alcoholics and I'm trying to set a good example, but I haven't really quit) and I'm trying to quit smoking, but they can just not get their heads around these things. I get asked "what's wrong with you?" when I don't drink of accept the offer of 50g of tobacco from my grandad who coughs up bloody mucus every couple of minutes.... :/ And they call me crazy and make out like I can't eat ANYTHING?!?!
I just try to be strong and carry on because I'm proud to be helping animals, and I don't care about people acknowledging or understanding that fact because knowing it about myself makes me feel good, and makes me feel happy every time I see an animal, totally worth it, who cares if people think I'm crazy!!
