It’s impossible for me to understand, but some people I know truly don’t give a crap about animals or the environment. How do I reach these people. They shoot down everything I say about protecting animals or saving the planet with a shrug and a “So what?” Nothing I say or show them gets through. No matter how hard I try. They simply don’t care who they hurt as long as they get their bacon. They make me sick. What do you think?
There are the close minded people out there who don’t have the capacity to consider the possibility of others being right. Honestly, just move on. It’s frustrating for you and the more time spent on a lost cause is less potential time spent with someone who wants to consider and hear what you have to say. The best thing you can do about trolls is keep calm and always, always, always! Be respectful. Those people will be the first to go out and make a meme about how vegans are angry and think they’re superior. It’s difficult when you’re passionate but sometimes the most beneficial thing for animals is to smile and let it go.
Everyone has different opinions, we shouldn’t bash them and call them names for it. Sure, they may be doing horrid things, but they feed off of your negative energy. Most likely, they enjoy your reactio the most. Don’t let them get to you (::
That sucks. People I notice who act like that just tend to have selfish mentalities; the best way to break through that though is try to figure out why they feel that way. Find out what makes them tick and work from there.
Just because they wave you off doesn’t mean that they don’t hear it. Maybe one day they’ll listen, so don’t give up. If you speak what’s in your heart – because you know how important these issues are to you – then your part is done. Whether or not they listen is up to them, and there’s really nothing you can do to make them.
