Each vegan saves nearly 200 animals per year

        At 30, I gave up fish and seafood, because I was tired to wait for the outcome of the debate if the fish felt pain or not and I decided to listen to the feeling of guilt I felt every time I ate them.

    I do not believe in „I will change tomorrow” promises, I don’t think they are serious and lasting. I don’t even believe that vegetarianism is for everyone. It is not for those who eat chaotic and don’t seriously take care of all the necessary nutrients, is it NOT  for the people who don’t have serious beliefs and love for all animals and it only looks  "trendy" to say you're a vegan.

   Also, at 30, I realized that 80% of my cosmetics are tested on animals. I was studying a cosmetics catalog and preparing to buy some products ... when in the description of a cream I found "Dermatologically tested".  I knew about these tests, but I didn’t know exactly what they mean. I never "had" the time to discover the reality behind this tests. I said it was time to find out: „a substance is dripped into rabbits’ eyes or smeared onto their shaved skin. Laboratory technicians then record the damage—which can include inflamed skin, ulcers, bleeding, bloody scabs, swollen eyelids, irritated and cloudy eyes, or even blindness. 
White rabbits are preferred because they are cheap and do not yell a lot.
Then, for seven days, the rabbits are tied and prevented from washing or licking their wounds, and then they are sacrificed for analysis

       In vain I show my disappointment when I see women proud of their thousand-euro bags made with dead animal's skin, as well as furs, in vain I don't eat meat, because from ignorance I still contribute to this misery. I threw all the cosmetics I had at that time and searched for vegan options. They are incredibly many and tremendously good.

       It took me 6 years to say  without guilt that I love animals and that yes ... it was not about selfishness but Love for oneself ... Love for others, any form of "others", animals or people, and Love for our environment, it is already known how the high demand for meat contributes to pollution. 

        I am annoying now with the question "Is it tested on animals?" ... but I have a happy heart and I can embrace rabbits without remorse.
