The hardest part of being vegan

Today is a very busy day for me. Furthermore, it's an unusually miserable Monday which I'd much rather spend curled up beneath the sheets than studying and meeting people and whatnot. I'll just do my best to make it through the day, and hope I manage without falling apart mentally or physically until I get home. Due to these worldly circumstances, I'm going to cheat a bit and do a reprise of an old post for VeganMoFo today. 

You remember I talked about overcoming reasons against eating vegan? Well, it turns out I wasn't as truthful as I could have been. The very hardest part of going vegan (for me) had nothing at all to do with stopping eating certain things. It is the social aspect of it all that I find hardest to deal with and that at times leaves me feeling utterly de-motivated. The never-ending questioning of my choice by people around me, friends and strangers alike.

If you have not already, I can recommend that you read this post that I wrote about a year ago: Take Me As I Am. It pretty much sums up my sentiment on the matter. A sentiment that is still relevant, especially on days like this, when I'm not at my best. 

Anyone else who's made a supposedly radical lifestyle decision and can relate? Or am I just being whiny?
