You Can’t Change What You Don’t Acknowledge
Dr. Phil often uses that expression when working with people who are struggling with something but aren’t being honest with themselves.
What I believe is going on with most people who don’t truly hear the message of veganism is that they don’t change because they don’t acknowledge the problem.
The problem is enormous, of course, and it’s dreadful.
And most people have so many other concerns on their plates that to have to face one more depressing realization and then to be faced with making changes in their lives is just more than they want to face.
So animal cruelty continues and most very good people continue to allow it to happen.
The first step to making changes for the better is always to face those things that are difficult to face, but the rewards come afterwards.
None of us is perfect, but most of us want to be better people and to continue to grow throughout our lives.
And most of us want to make this world a better place for all.
The rewards are to know that you had the courage to face the truth, that you had the compassion and will to make changes and then to realize that you are making a positive difference in the world, because each and every person’s actions matter.
Ending animal exploitation and intense cruelty is not going to happen without the majority of people truly looking at the problem and being honest with themselves about their part in it.
Please be someone who will honestly look at the reality of what we do to animals behind closed doors and please remember you have the choice to refuse to support it and thus make a beautiful difference in this world!
