If my friend was trying to force me to eat meat we wouldn’t be friends for very long. Veganism is very important to me, I don’t really care what anyones opinion about it is, to be honest. Your family and true friends will come around eventually because they should respect and love you. Who cares about the rest.
True friends won’t care either way.
Surround yourself with positive and open minded people and you’ll never have to ask this question again.
