My lost spark and how you all helped me rekindle it

Golden FussHello, my name is Harley Hill, but I go by Vulpe Ljubavi mostly online. I just wanted, no, “needed” to thank this site, all the wonderfully inspiring stories and people on it, and a very special thanks to the whole brony community.

I guess I should start from the beginning.
When I was growing up, I never could connect with people the way other kids could. I was always seeing affection and was never able to relate on a human level. I could love and adore animals of all kinds, but projecting that love onto a emotional relationship with another person was inconceivable at the time. It seemed like my animal world and my human world were different universes.
But then I found a way to bridge them.
I found out about furries when I was fourteen, and had many friends within weeks. Something that I could never have dreamed of prior to that. And when I was sixteen I met someone, we were together for two years before we found out he had cancer.
When he dumped me I was happy that he could go live his life the way he wanted before he goes. But that was the last time I felt happiness. The spark of love and life inside me had died and I didn’t care anymore.
Until I caught a glimpse of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on TV. I can’t remember which episode it was, but I remember it had a song on it that struck a chord in me that I had forgotten existed. And so, from 2012 to a few weeks ago when I saw the episode, I had been faking my emotions to hide them, to pretend I was okay and nothing was wrong. But when I saw that song, I truly smiled.
 Later that night I realized after watching half the first season on YouTube, that I could unlock my emotions though friendship and music. And when I realized that, it was like someone (somepony) had poured gasoline on my brain and lit a match (in a good way), because my emotions have been flooding back to me ever since. I cry freely, laugh wholeheartedly, love tenderly, I ‘feel’ again and its thanks to you all.
This is the first time I’ll be saying this publicly but here it goes.
My name Hardly Hill from Beattyville Kentucky, I am a brony! and my pony is Golden Fuss!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME. (I’ve never spoken to any of you, but your words have spoken to me)

    I lost a boyfriend to suicide, and your story touched me. I’m so glad you are a brony. If I never became a brony, I don’t think I could’ve handled the grief. /)
