"It’s important not to take it personally when people do not respond favorably to the vegan message. There are many reasons for this - habit, indoctrination, tradition, taste preferences, fear of the unknown and more. This isn’t to say that we shouldn’t always work on how we present the message, but acting like you are not a good enough spokesperson or activist isn’t helpful. People respond differently to all manners of presentation and messages. Find what is authentic to your voice and push forward."
