You're more real than Essena.. you're realistic about life and actually you're not preachy at all about being vegan. I likeee yew :))))

“Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to”

I understand that your intentions are coming from the right place and you’re trying to make me feel good, but comparing me to a friend or saying you like me because I’m different to her, that’s not a compliment to me. You can appreciate me as an individual/blogger/human being without having to tear down somebody else. I don’t see veganism as preachy. I used to, but that was before I understood it or how important it is. There are days I just want to cry and scream with the knowledge of what is going on every second all around the world. It is emotionally exhausting. Sometimes it takes everything I’ve got not to break down and spill out information at people because of what they are unwittingly supporting. ‘Preaching’ something this vital to our survival and the lives of others (it’s literally a matter of life or death) and someone expressing that is mere passion.

Thank you for liking who I am, if you could next time just focus on the compliment without involving a negative against someone else, that would be greatly appreciated xx
