Ok, so I went to a ranch with my family to buy a goat. We go there, and my parents decide to kill it right then, and there. They asked the man who owned the ranch if he could do that.
I watched as the man killed the poor thing. 😭
I love meat, but after seeing the goat get killed, I decided I was going to be a vegetarian, meaning I live practically on salad, and vegetables. ( '-')
I tried that for a day, and I couldn't make it. ('-' )
I ate a chicken (poor thing 😅😂😅).
Anyway, has anyone else tried being a vegetarian? How did it go for you? 😊

Reminds me of Silence of the Lambs
Yea, I was a vegetarian for five years. One day I was eating a bologna sandwich. I looked at it and thought "this is gross". So I stopped eating it. I didn't eat meat for five years after that.
I started eating meat again just because of circumstances. I was working at an out-of-the-way guest ranch. It included room and board. The food they served was mostly meat based. I could have continued being vegetarian, but the selection would have been pretty limited. So I just ate what was served.
I was only a vegetarian because I thought it was healthier, not because I didn't want to kill animals. I don't have any moral issues with eating meat. I also no longer think it's the most healthy diet.
A lion eats meat. Humans eat meat. The lion doesn't feel guilty about being a lion. I don't feel guilty about being a human.1

I'm now 18 years old and have been a vegetarian for 4 and a half years. I also started cutting out meat in my diet because i didn't want animals to be harmed. And honestly its the best decision I've ever made. I started paying attention to my diet, started eating healthier because i educated myself more about food, lost weight, did more sports and felt better overall. I also educated myself about how animals would be treated before being killed which shocked me and also learned lots about milk industry and such. After some time of getting used to not eat meat, it just became more and more logical to me that eating meat is not ethnically right (in my opinion, everyone can chose to do and eat what they want to of course) and that its not worth it for animals to suffer just so i can enjoy a steak or whatever.
Also being vegetarian isn't just eating salad, you can basically eat everything. When I want to have a burger, I just get one with a veggie patty, I eat spaghetti bolognese with soy granulate instead of meat and it tastes AMAZING etc... After some weeks of getting used to it, your taste buds will get used to not having meat and you won't feel the urge to eat it anymore. I once tried to eat meat again, and it didn't taste good to me anymore because i just wasn't used to the taste anymore. Living without meat is so easy if you are creative with cooking and inform yourself, just give it a try for a few days a week! And if you really care about animals, you will be proud that you can live and enjoy life without hurting them.2
