Vegans are regular people! Some are doctors or lawyers, some are farmers or teachers. Some are happy-go-lucky, some are serious, some optimistic, some pessimistic. All are trying to do the best they can for their own health, animals and our planet.
Often the reasons that people become vegan are serious – climate change, deforestation, species loss, heart disease, cancer and animal suffering are no laughing matters – and vegans often talk about these painful or serious subjects when they explain why they are vegan. This does not mean they ALWAYS talk about these issues, or they are miserable or pessimistic about the state of the world. The very fact they’ve become vegan suggests they think there is still hope!
Vegans usually live very normal lives. They work, bring up their kids, do the school run, watch a game with their friends, go dancing on a Saturday night and enjoy time with family and friends. The thing that marks them out is that they have changed what they eat for a good reason. That is a positive action; that is taking control! It is living their lives in a way that is best for them, their health, their conscience and the world around them. They are not just moaning about what is wrong in the world, they are embracing the solution. And that is about as far away from being naïve or pessimistic as we can imagine.
