As with any major lifestyle change, it is a good idea to keep some sort of etiquette in mind, whether it be for telling people about your decision, or for social functions. Veg-living may be a new concept for many people in your life, so it is wise to be open about your decision, and help those around you accommodate your needs, which can oftentimes be as simple as reminding them.
While there are a lot of different ways to go about doing this, the following are tips and suggestions that will help keep these situations as smooth as possible!
When telling friends about your decision to become veg, it is useful to keep a few things in mind to make the talk go as smoothly as possible. Remember that very few people are born and raised veg, and that you once did not know about animal suffering either.
Aim to use logic, reason and evidence, and remember to put judgement aside, as it can result in people becoming confrontational or dismissive. Simply tell people about your choice and what it means for you.
And if you can whip up an incredible veg dish or dessert that will impress while you speak about your decision, that always helps, too!
