So I just Started Grade 9 on wensday, so that means new school, and new friends.I have 1 friend in my lunch, so obviosly I’ve been sitting with new people I dont know. But I havnt mentioned to anyone that im a vegitarian trying to go vegan, and I’m really afraid to. I’ve had people hate me because I’m vegitarian, and I hate the “Wow, how can you not live without bacon/steak?” I get every single time. Is anyone else just casually not mentioning it, and like, trying to pretend they are just like everyone else, at least for september when they are still making friends? OR does anyone have any advice for how to bring it up??
hey @SkiVegChick I know how you feel. My friends are always saying, “I could never do it…..I love bacon, steak, etc too much” It gets annoying but most of my friends accept me. Some others don’t…screw them.
Friendly advice from an older person who’s been in your situation their gna find out eventually might as well be by you, but hold off until you get to know them a little better or when u get comfortable enough to to just let it slip out casually in a conversation who knows they might even respect you for it and if they have a prob with it then you saved your self time from wasting time on people who weren’t going to be true friends
