The Hero and the Battle with ID.

Everyday we wake up to a new day, and the problems we face are all around us. The one we can try and manage is the internal struggle with ourselves. Growing up being bullied, I acquired a new ability, the power of destruction through a misunderstanding with myself.

There was nothing inherently wrong with myself, it was just a long journey of pulling apart the pieces of childhood and reassembling them until the picture was clear. Bullying is an abuse of power, when empathy, logic, negotiation, and understanding were the solutions all along. Nothing came good of retaliation, but just the deepest scars, even the ones I had brought to my own body. Pure hatred and misunderstanding instead of empathy. “Bullying” is an emotional intelligence that is inherently evil and is a huge problem in society today.

Holding a theoretical meat eaters club is basically a dinner club, but it excludes vegetarians, vegans, and pescatarians. Holding a vegan dinner club and not including carnivores makes you an asshole and is self empowering. It’s basically bullying on both sides instead of coming together and forming an agreement. IDs clashing. If a vegan truly loves animals, they would understand that we’re all connected in some way. Don’t be the asshole.

Update: eating animals is not cool.

I'm Sean Kilby and I'm from North Carolina I grew up with a great passion for music, arts, books, swimming, biking, soccer, Magic the Gathering, travel, electronic arts, and theme parks (Not Sea Parks). 5 ish years ago I started the process of moving away from animal based foods, now I'm completely vegan for about 2-3 years. I've studied nutrition by reading books, websites, and articles such as Thrive and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger (not a vegan guide). I took the approach of a plant based vegan diet so I didn't have to sustain myself by using an animal product for sustenance. I also do a lot of thought exercises and self reflection, meditation, and mindfulness to navigate through the experiences of life. I place these thoughts on this blog to have a good conversation with myself and others. The biggest and most difficult conversation that is taking place is that the global temperatures are dramatically increasing, putting our global ecosystem in danger due to methane gas from animal agriculture. The hardest part was I had lost the vision to improve the future. My work is ever changing, but setting clear goals have brought me to where I am today. Taking up the e-quill to tell a story.
