Beyond Beliefs

Vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters can feel like they’re living in different worlds. Many vegans and vegetarians struggle to feel understood and respected in a meat-eating culture, where some of their most pressing concerns and cherished beliefs are invisible, and where they are often met with defensiveness when they try to talk about the issue. They can become frustrated and struggle to feel connected with meat eaters. And meat eaters can feel disconnected from vegans and vegetarians whose beliefs they don’t fully understand and whose frustration may spill over into their interactions. The good news is that relationship and communication breakdown among vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters is not inevitable, and it is reversible. With the right tools, healthy connections can be cultivated, repaired, and even strengthened.
In Beyond Beliefs, internationally recognized food psychology expert and longtime relationship coach Dr. Melanie Joy provides easy-to-understand, actionable advice so you can:
• Learn the principles and tools for creating healthy relationships
• Understand how to communicate about even the most challenging topics effectively
• Recognize how the psychology of being vegan/vegetarian or of being a meat eater affects your relationships with others, and with yourself

    For many vegans, the decision to stop consuming animals is one of the most empowering choices of their lives. And yet this decision often comes at a price—the disruption of relationships.

    For instance, suppose you told a supporter that your partner had made a negative comment about veganism at a recent get-together. Rather than say, “What a jerk! I can’t stand people who say things like that!” they might say, “That sounds like a disrespectful comment. I can understand why you’re feeling so hurt and angry.” This response validates your concern without judging or criticizing your partner as a “bad person.”

    Both turning against and turning away can damage the security and connection of a relationship. And while turning against is clearly problematic and can even be abusive, turning away can be even more devastating because it’s often difficult or impossible to detect and therefore to address. Turning away is a form of neglect, and when chronic, it can also be a form of abuse.
