A True, True Friend

Growing up was not easy for me, at home and at school. I was made fun of at school for my ADHD, saying I was creepy for what my medicine made me do, and because I had so much trouble learning because I couldn’t concentrate. As well, I was made fun of for how naive I was growing up, and people using my name to make jokes into, and there was a lot of people who said they were my friends but only picked on me because of how naive I was. I felt like people were only out to get me for a long time, I didn’t trust anyone, always thinking people would turn on me.

It wasn’t until I reached my first year of college that someone wanted to be my friend, we began to talk and share our stories, and realized he was as different as I was with some of the same problems. One day he saw how I was, knowing from all the stories I told him, about how I grew up, how I was picked on so much for so many things that he showed me MLP:FiM. He showed me that true friends accept a person for who they are: that not everyone in the world is going to turn on you.

Both MLP and a true friend showed me how I could trust someone.

    I know what it’s like. just got into a conversation with a hater on my Steam account who didn’t insult me but insulted one of my OC’s from my fiction. People may hate but trust me it’s natural. People deny others who are different because they are insecure. I suffer from ADHD and have to take the medicine you speak of only when I take I shake for a bit after a couple of taking said medicine. It helps but opens my mind up way too much.

    True friends stick by you no matter what happens like my friends that I had before I became said Brony and they are still my best friends. Still I can’t imagine the pain but at the same time I know because I am different and smarter then the average person and see the world differently then they do. Even though I don’t get done with many projects because I can’t pay attention sometimes but I don’t see disabilities as well disabilities but as gifts. Sure ADHD makes you weird sometimes but that’s what makes you who you are the best thing you can do is get up and brush off your shoulder.

    As for me well I would be off to college of all my disabilities didn’t hold me back a year. But my disabilities allowed me to look at the world and see the positive in all the negative. It can be hard being different but the best thing we can do is inspire others to accept who they are and not be upset or mad at those who insult them.

      I hope you don’t mind me asking but what is the learning disability that you have ?
      Because I have a learning disability my self ( dyslexia ) that makes my spelling very bad at times. /)

    I’m glad you found your true friend <3 Having a slight learning disability myself, I know how it feels to be used and led on by "friends" and actually lost quite a bit recently. But I'm slowly gaining some back because they like me for me <3

    Love and tolerate /)*(\

    All i have to say is ” a true true friend helps a friend in need to see the light that shines from a true true friend”.

    It’s very brave of you to share your story with us. Keep being different (because being different is what makes us all wonderful). :)

    The same happened to me, until I changed school at 6th grade. I found the show over 1 year ago but started watching it last fall. I’ve been smiling ever since. Now I found out my best friend is also a brony. You keep going the way you are and life will be wonderful :)

    I know the feeling of being picked on. It’s really unpleasant, and it really hurts to be picked on so much when you grow up. A lot of days I feel like the only one I can trust is my boyfriend, though he’s ~1400 miles away from me, so it doesn’t help much. I’m glad, though, that you were able to find someone you can trust.

    My truest friend was my very first. A girl named Skylar. I met her in 1st grade at 7 years old. She was the same age… but, sadly, she had breast cancer at that age. She was always the kindest, most gentle person I’ll ever know. She moved the last day of school… and I have never had contact with her since, due to the fact I had not thought to ask her for any contact information. To this day, I still search for her, wondering if I shall ever find that truest friend again… alive.

    Dude I went through some what the same thing but I didn’t stop trusting people. I had fiends that weren’t really my friends too. I’m sure what I went through wasn’t as bad but I understand the situation

  • TheDigitalNord  says:

    I have ADHD my self, many of my friends are always commenting my lack of skill at school, and that I suck at tests and stuff but there’s this one girl i met a few weeks ago and she has changed my life, from waking up every day feeling like my life don’t have any meaning to waking up and looking forward to a new and wonderful day.
