My mom finally knows I'm vegetarian, I am no longer in the closet. I can't say how relieved I am... I 'sorta' told her a few times before but it's like she didn't get it or she wouldn't except it and because she's so important to me that had a huge effect on me actually eating meat when I'd go back home to live her (on breaks & weekends) Well it makes me feel like I don't have to hide anymore or worry about disappointing her because anything that I do that is different from how I was brought up makes her feel like a failure, like she wasn't a good mom, so I really never wanted to tell her, but it feels so much better now. Now I can really call myself a vegetarian, if I want... yay! Now I have to tell my dad, and see how the rest of my family will react. Is anyone else in the closet?
