Make sure you’re emotionally equipped

Perhaps you’ve sheltered yourself since becoming a vegan, not really spending time around meat-eaters, and certainly not in the presence of a giant roasted bird put on display. Have an honest conversation with yourself about what it will mean to enjoy a meal surrounded by people eating meat. Will you be able to endure it, without lecturing people or making them feel bad about their choices? That won’t be fair to your host who put so much time into the day. The Thanksgiving dinner your friend lovingly hosts isn’t meant to be your platform to convert people to veganism.
