friends

a real friend never leaves you. no matter how much you’re pushed away. you know what they need. they need someone who will never give up on them.

Be compassionate

I can’t help but get emotional and frustrated while everyday I know thousands of animals are being tortured and sent to their death and people don’t think twice about it. People don’t think twice when they order a cheeseburger or their Black Forest ham sandwich or their chicken biscuit. They don’t think about the animal that had to suffer and die for them to have enjoyment. Did you really enjoy your food so much that it was worth the slaughter of innocent life? I’m not saying this because I think I’m better than anyone else. Because I’m not. Were all just here trying to figure life out. I’m just sharing what I’ve learned and I hope you will take the time out of your day to do your own research to see what you’re really contributing to when you order your chicken sandwich. Take time out of your life to see the entire life you’re taking away from others. Show compassion for other earthlings around you. Lay down at night and be happy to think you’ve caused the least amount of suffering today.

Don’t beat around the bush

My dad was like carving some kind of meat off a bone and he was like it’s times like these when I wish you’d eat meat! It tastes so good. And I was like yeah my dinner was really tasty too. And then he was like not as good. And then I was like well nothing had to die for my meal. And then he said don’t be that way. And I was like what it’s the truth? And he was like no you’re attacking me! And I was like no I’m not??? The fact you feel so threatened by me saying that just goes to show you know it’s not right. And I walked away.

" The difference between people who state Veganism is easy, and those who state Veganism is hard, is those who say it’s easy are focused on the victims, while those who say it’s hard are focused on themselves. "

" Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it. "

-  Leo Tolstoy, A Confession (via animalsandtrees)

" When I turned vegan, I didn’t feel that way about every animal around. I’ve noticed it’s something that changes naturally. Nowadays I vacuum around a spider, catch flies to release them outside and let silverfish go about their business; a whole new world, a whole new-found mental peace. I love being vegan, it’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I finally understand, we all have but one life, human, cow, ant, everyone, it is not our right to take it away in a whim, simply because we can, it’s their right to live their lives, just like us, just like me.

"

If you caught your kid raising cats in tiny boxes, forcing them to live in their own feces without clean air or sunlight, pulling their teeth and claws out with pliers to keep them from hurting each other, then skinning them alive to make collars to sell to their friends, you’d rush him to a psychiatrist.

But you support that very behavior every time you buy meat, eggs, dairy or fur.

" He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong. "
