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.
