“I used to be a vegetarian for a year and a half until I had to come home to take care of my grandfather who was in the last stages of cancer. When I arrived, he cooked a lot of meat dishes that I used to enjoy, including his famous stuffed cabbage (gołąbki). However, he forgot that I stopped eating meat. When I reminded him, I saw his face drop with disappointment. In that moment, I decided to say “screw it” and ate the meat anyway. It made him so happy to be able to cook for me while he still could, and I knew that it was more important to make him happy than to stick to my diet. It was a small sacrifice for a greater cause.”
