Do We Have The Strength To Accept Opposing Views? – Episode 054

Veganism is one thing, and 2020 is something entirely different. But one theme that overlaps is the challenge of accepting other people’s perspectives. This at least has been hard for us, and we want to use our experiences of being vegan in a non-vegan world to help us connect and love others who fundamentally disagree with us, and vice versa.

Specifically, we discuss:

  • The deep desire to feel accepted
  • The trap of the vegan bubble and confirmation bias in general
  • How being vegan naturally creates conflict and division
  • How we plan to accept others while disagreeing with them

  1. loved this episode, guys! such an important but uncomfortable topic, I had the feeling that 2020 was so challenging due to the opposing views everyone was holding — which made me crawl into my own echo chamber most of the time, haha.
    I’m so happy to have been able to let others challenge my views and this resulted in pretty big mindset shifts 🙂 I hope there are more to come!
    keep up the great work

    1. Aw, we’re so glad you enjoyed this episode. We’re already feeling way more aware of our own bias in every interaction. Lol, yes, 2020 felt like the year to recluse, but hopefully, we can engage more in these conversations in 2021. Thanks for sharing your experience with us! 🙂 Michael
