A Customizable Script for the Modern Attention-Seeker Who Just Quit Being Vegan
There are few weeks that go by where someone famous-ish doesn’t announce that they are no longer vegan with great fanfare and dramatics: chefs, athletes, wellness gurus, “personalities,” influencers, and so on. Social media and short attention spans have created the perfect storm for someone who has only embraced veganism superficially to walk away from it in a big public way in a bid to grab more attention and followers.
If you’re about to make an Earth-Shattering Announcement that you are no longer vegan, I will save you all the work. You need to save that up for getting more attention. I have seen enough of these to know that it’s basically a script so I have put it in handy checklist form for you. Check one or more answers as apply. Record or copy-paste with your fill-in-the-blank and upload or post. Easy-peasy! And you’re welcome.
Hi, friends —
I have been wanting to
___write this post
___make this video
___speak my truth
for months, but I have been too scared. I’ve lost so much sleep over this. I’ve had panic attacks. I stopped eating. I finally decided that dishonesty is too great a burden, though, and I could not longer live that way. Also, I’ve learned that
___a video exposé
___photos taken without my permission
are about to go public so there’s no time like the present. I know that I’m probably going to
for what I’m about to say but I can’t live a lie any longer.
Here goes [if video do one or all of the following]…
I understand that there may be rumors about me, so I thought I’d let you hear it directly from me because I believe in
___keeping it real.
For once, the “rumors” are true: I’m no longer vegan. I was vegan for a while and I really loved it but in recent months have begun thinking that it was closing me off
___as a creator
___from my personal growth
so I am leaving the label behind. I also
___felt vaguely sick
___had bad digestion
and I tried to hide this but eventually I saw a recommended
who told me I should start eating
were a mess. I was terrified of breaking my vegan vow, but I couldn’t continue feeling like this anymore: I had one bite of
and I immediately felt
___a million times better!!!
So much better that I couldn’t go back. Thus, I am announcing that I have released my veganism with love and gratitude but it would be dishonest to myself to continue on this path, which had begun to feel
and thus was stunting my personal and professional growth.
I no longer believe in closing myself off to the bountiful offerings from the animal kingdom of honey, dairy products, eggs, meat, etc. because I now think that rejecting these offerings is a(n)
approach. If I can’t feel gratitude and lovingly accept these offerings, I am also not accepting the dark that comes with the light, the yin with the yang. In this acceptance of my shadow self, I am breaking free from
and setting my
free. In setting myself free, I give others permission to do the same.
I am liberating the animals’ souls when I eat what they have graciously given us. There is no good or bad; there is only
There is no death, only cessation of life as we know it. What’s up is down. What’s down is up.
So I have learned to accept these offerings from my animal cousins with love and without judgment, and my followers will also benefit as I embrace these offerings with the utmost gratitude, love and respect.
___The Infinite Universal Soul
guides my every decision so it cannot be wrong. I am
___guided by spirit
___a natural healer
so if you see me enjoying sheep’s milk cheese, organic ghee, homemade bone broth or a beautiful salmon that swam free until it was gently netted, please understand that I am simply returning to a natural alignment with my
___state of allowing
Am I still largely vegan? You bet! I will also keep turning people on to high-vibration, happy plant foods, nourished by the sun, lovingly cultivated and celebrated. (Not soy, though, because it’s
However, I would rather eat once-avoided animal products that found their way to me with love and appreciation than low-frequency, processed plant foods. This is how I nourish myself and that is how I believe we will save one another, through
Breaking free of the vegan
is the next logical step of my evolving spirit, allowing me to embrace all of the Universe and what it has to offer in a way that I didn’t as a vegan. If you’re upset because you contributed to my
or referred people to me when I was still in the vegan box, all I can say is I hope you find peace and will find it in your heart to eventually support my full ___journey
as I do yours.
___Love and Light
