I'm already a vegetarian though ;; I've been a vegetarian since I was kid. Even since I was a kid, I was getting sick easily, you could said I have a weak body, but since I'm becoming Vegetarian, until today I am grateful that I still have the spirit to chasing my dream.
I don't exactly remember when though but it started after my mom gave me an apple, and my mom is the one told me to, since she is also a Vegetarian. So I was like "uh okay, sure."
Then suddenly I was getting hospitalized when I was 10 years old. The doctor told my parents that I had the early symptoms of dengeu fever, so actually around that time when you caught DF there's no guarantee you could make it alive. Regardless, after being hospitalized probably 1weeks, with regular check up and they said I was recovered, then on my way going home, my mom said:
"when you was small, I don't exactly remember when, I had a dream. In the dream, someone sound like an old man told me that you(my daughter) wouldn't make it through in age 10, you only had 10years life spans he said.
I thought you are still small and that's so pitiful also sad, I couldn't let it happens, so the day I was going to be a lifetime vegetarian 请口(like a vow to become a lifetime Vegetarian), I gave you the apple, then asked to became a vegetarian with me." My mom said.
Sound unbelievable but that what was really happened to me haha. In our believe, we believe we have been reincarnated a lot of times, so in the past lives, either we did good or bad we didnt know. If you did a good deeds in the past, than you will receive the good things, same thing with bad things, and the source of bad karma is meat.
That's what we called 因果(it tooks from yin from yin wei 因为 which means "because" and guo 果which means a fruit).
Either a good ones or bad ones depending on how you act, they would be getting back at you sooner or later. Like if a stranger slaps you suddenly then I'm sure you will slaps him back, that's how the karma works.
I believe in karma, that's why I have became a lifetime vegetarian as well around around last summer in 2018.
Please don't take it to heart, just want to share stories of mine , and then whether people would like to vegetarian, vegan or not, it's completely their choice. Since it's their own life.
I hope you all have a great day!
