Parental Backlash

Standard

So today is the first time my mother has said anything about my new lifestyle. I figured her lack of chatter on the topic meant she was fine with it. I was very wrong.

She told me today, as I made myself a vegan burger and home fries for dinner, that this may not be the “diet” for me because it cuts out things I love… So far the only thing I loved that had to be cut out was cheese burgers. Not a very unhealthy choice for me.

The only thing she convinced me of today is that this is the right lifestyle for me and that my results and lack of complaint upsets her. She, like most of the world, doesn’t like what we represent, the informed minority.

Now more than ever I am committed to the vegan lifestyle. I will never be tempted to go back because she has voiced in the past that I don’t rebel against her enough…

Here it is mother, my rebellion
