I am a vegetarian since my teen years, and a couple of years ago, I became a vegan. I can tell you that for me, the difference was enormous. Leaving meat out of my diet made me feel a lot lighter and my intuition and empathic abilities were significantly clearer and better, even though I did not notice that so well at the time since I didn't know what an empath is back then, but honestly, I would never go back. It was as if a dull veil was lifted from my heart and mind. More than once I took in bad energy from meat products, I felt miserable and anxious after eating it, this never happened anymore after cutting it out of my diet.
But please, don't stress yourself with what you 'should' do. Don't freak out about any choices you feel you should make but don't feel able to at the moment or if it doesn't feel right for you. I recommend you to just try it for a while and see if it is for you or not, we're not all the same. Perhaps you can try a meat-free month and observe what changes for you? Perhaps nothing, perhaps everything. I also recommend to avoid dairy for a while as well, for me this made the biggest difference of all, it was not good for me and my physical and mental health and I only realized this when I tried out a vegan diet for a month, and from there I never went back because I felt like a completely new and awakened person.
