Repost by joey.vegan: As a young child, there was a stage where I was scared of monsters in the dark. Sitting up in bed some nights terribly frightened, my mind was convinced that monsters were real. Surely I wasn't the only child that did?
Somewhere along the way we lose that fear, and our innocence along with it. Through family and cultural traditions, rituals, religous practices, social conditioning and clever commercialised marketing we are programmed at a young age to actually believe that consuming animal products is normal.
The largest health organisations in the world have openly admitted that a plant based Vegan diet is safe and adequate for all stages of life including pregnancy. This means the consumption of animal products is totally unnecessary to our survival
As I grew older I knew something was wrong with the world, so I decided to educate myself on topics that my parents could not, and topics my schools would not.
I watched documentaries like DOMINION, and EARTHLINGS and my heart just absolutely sank, I watched graphic images of animals being slaughtered for food. I looked into their eyes and saw nothing but absolute horror and finally realised that this whole time it was me they we scared of. The real monster was me, the consumer.
Everytime you pay for animal products you are directly supporting the endless and systematic pain, torture and suffering of these animals, for nothing more than to please your taste buds.
It's not acceptable, this can't be who we are, we have to be better than this.

In my eyes, there was almost nothing my dad couldn’t do. He stood right next to Superman, Batman and the Power Rangers 😎. Dad taught me many things, such as how to ride a bicycle, play volleyball and how to moonwalk while wearing socks on our wooden floorboards 😆. The thing I miss the most about dad is how he would make me laugh so hard that I couldn’t breathe. I would physically hurt as I tried to gasp for air. I don’t think anyone will ever make me laugh as hard as he did. Today is the 4th anniversary of dad’s passing, and I will never forget how I felt when we received the phone call of his death. The saddest moment is when the person who gave you the best memories, becomes a memory. Four years ago, I was told that time would help me miss him less, but you never stop missing someone you love and care about, you just learn to live without them. Missing someone doesn’t make you unaccepting of death, it just makes you human. I know that dad is at peace now #loveyou#missyou#dad 💕😘
We all need a little encouragement sometimes. ❤
Motherhood can be a challenging experience. And for first-time mums, the process of accepting this new life as normal can be a difficult one filled with fear.
But, you are never alone!!
