FUCK YOU VEGANS WHO ACT LIKE CHRISTIANS!
STOP FORCING YOUR LIFESTYLE CHOICE ONTO OTHERS! THATS WHAT CONQUISTADORS AND CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES DO!
if people eat meat, let them. stop making a big fuss over it. maybe its for health reasons, or the fact that they can’t afford the lifestyle. its a choice for oneself. not your choice for others.
I grew up living in between Peru and the States. I grew up eating quinoa before white culture made it their own. its an ancient grain like all the others, nothing new. like the article said which is the source, its for the indigenous people which it has been for centuries.
I was looked down on when I tried to share my lunch in elementary school in South FL which had quinoa in it. I’m also looked down on for choosing to eat meat when, unlike most vegans I’ve encountered who are preachy, haven’t stepped foot in a slaughterhouse like I have. I have slaughtered my own lunch before as a child. i am very comfortable of where my meat comes from when its local because I know the animals are taken care of better. I admit I have eaten rabbit and guinea pig. both were bred on my own rooftop in Lima Peru. I skinned them myself and kept the pelts.
I am viewed as a savage.
do you have any tips on building self-esteem? i think you're awesome and i admire your confidence so much!
HERE’S WHAT I DO TO FEEL GREAT:
-don’t see bad self esteem or a bad attitude as an option. if you feel shitty, people will treat you shitty. what you project into the world comes back 100 times at you. I say “good stuff only” because it’s all I want. I am not childish enough to think that there is only rainbows and glitter in the world, but I also don’t want to attract depression and poison and negativity into my life. There is enough of that around without welcoming it.
-surround yourself only with people who like you and support you, as you are now, and as the person you want to become.
-do what feels right, and do it cause it feels good.
-keep track of what you eat and see what makes you feel awesome and stoked, and what makes you feel like a sleepy crummy slug. I feel awesome when I eat spicy food, and lots of vegetables, broccoli especially. I feel shitty when I eat only french fries and candy. I still eat french fries and candy, but if I am feeling kind of bad, I will make sure I eat extra veggies first or try to kill my misery with spice.
-quit the job you hate and get one you like.
-find what makes you look your best, and make yourself wear or do that thing when you’re feeling down. for me, it’s red lipstick!
-drink water! water makes me calm down when I am thisclose to having a meltdown, water makes your skin look nice, water is (usually) free and obtainable.
-sleep enough. I sleep 8+ hours every night if I can, because if I don’t, I feel TERRIBLE and mean and want to eat garbage and be a grouch and cry.
-if you have clothes that make you feel gross, get rid of them. don’t keep that dress that fit two years ago, don’t keep the shirt that rides up in the back, GET RID OF IT. I do not like how I look in pants, therefore I do not wear pants (except leopard print stretch pants).
-DON’T READ THE MEAN THINGS PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU. There are a lot of assholes on the internet who have never met you (and shit, some that have met you) who want to say every single mean thing their tiny brains can think of. Don’t read them. Anybody who reblogs something mean about me, I block. Any hate mail I get that’s not funny, I delete without responding to. Read this quote by Kathleen Hanna about Beyonce for more. Some people don’t like me. Some people don’t like you. I don’t hang out with people who don’t like me. It makes everything so much better.
-only believe in love and luck and rock n roll.
What else? Anything else? Find what works for you! I don’t know you, so I don’t know if these things will work. I can say “like yourself, look great duh, have fun” but it’s not as easy as it sounds! Being awesome is HARD WORK, and for all of my internet-stoked-blogging, there are still times where I am a pmsing crybaby witch who only wants panda express and dr.pepper and 500 noodles in butter. There is a place in all of us for good and bad, stokeage and meltdowns, but usually, overall, we all want to feel good, so let’s FEEL GREAT and ROCK N ROLL FOREVER, okay?
Just let me know if you wanna talk, I’m here for y’all.
Tonight, a good looking guy sits down beside me and starts a conversation.
- Him: I love the style of music they play here! (talking about the contemporary worship)
- Me: *half-joking* Yeah, but I prefer The Chariot.
- Him: The who?
- Me: ... -_-
- Him: ...
- Me: ...
- Him: Is that a band?
- Me: The Chariot is not just a band. The Chariot is a lifestyle.
- At this rate, I'll never find a guy in the state of Texas.
- People: Oh my gosh, you're so pretty as it is, you don't need to lose weight!
- Me: ....It's a lifestyle change.
- People: So you're just going to be a health nut now?
- Me: No, I'm going to become healthy and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
- People: Well how do you plan to do it?
- Me: By working my fucking ass off, and loving every second of it.
