For Michael

Hi folks, Forest Rain here with some sad news and an important announcement.

Michael Morones

Very recently, we learned that an 11-year-old boy named Michael Morones attempted to take his own life as a result of bullying on account of being a brony. While the attempt was, thankfully, not successful– Michael has been left with severe brain damage, and his family has been left with the medical expenses. His family has reached out to the brony community for help with these medical expenses, and we are responding a...

Klaus’s Struggle

Hi, I go by my pseudonym Klaus Klavier for the sake of anonymity, but here is a story I want to be seen…

Middle school is where this story begins. Ever since 6th grade I was bullied… badly, and why? Because of my odd sense of humor, and the fact I am constantly talking, this led to people believing I was just plain stupid.

People also did not want to listen to what I had to say anymore and it was common to hear the phrase “who are you talking to?” when clearly I was talking to them and had initi...

Good Friends Know What’s Best

Hello, Forest Rain.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brian. I just heard your song thanks to Equestria Daily and I was extremely touched by it. I saw your site and I knew that I just had to submit my own story to you. It’s a fairly common story, one about bullying, but one that I hope will help inspire those in the future that take the time to read it.

Currently, I am an 18 year old student who just recently graduated from high school...

Embodying the Elements

Hello there,

First I would like to express my feeling about the PMV, this really mentally touched me– it’s like me in a nutshell.

That’s because I never actually had a great past. I was born with bad eyes, already -11 / -12. I also appeared to be born with autism. It made my school days very difficult, because the first time I went to school, I already found myself being “different” than the other kids.

My parents were fighting as well...

Life is Like a Cake


Hi, my name is “Sunnyside”.

In my life, there had been tough times and turns, with bullying, and abuse from someone who should’ve been my mother, but instead wanted to be a beast. With many years of gossip saying I was addicted to drugs, and hate sites about me, even people beating me up physically and emotionally at school, made me have thoughts of the unbelievable. I had no idea what I was made for...

The Happy One

Princess Dina


I live in Germany so my English is not very good, but I hope you can read what I wrote.

In my entire life, I felt useless although my name was “The Happy One”. (That is what my real name means in German.) All my classmates bullied me and called me many dirty names. I changed schools twice but every time I thought I was safe from the bullying, others started to make fun of me. They said I am not worth living and should kill myself. Even my own mother hated me...

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...

Recurring Wounds



I go by numerous different names– Derpy being one of them– but for this sake, I’ll use the name I want: Christina. Throughout my years alive, I’ve been almost constantly bullied or in other ways down for me being different. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Paranoid-type Schizophrenia, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and more.

It’s hard coming around from day to day, and numerous times I just wanted...

Words of Encouragement

I got this inspiring letter from Dylan as a result of BronyDanceParty‘s music video for Great To Be Different, which you can see here.

I just saw the video, and it’s probably the best video I’ve ever seen. This video resembles my life in every way. I have a learning disability, and I used to be the shyest person in my school. So, because of that, everybody pushed me around, teased me, and made fun of me...

Panda and Jojo

My name is Echo Ecstasy, and my pony’s name is Panda. Me and Panda share a lot together: her and I are both adopted; her and I share the love of music and art; and her and I both love being creative and outgoing… for the most part.

Even though she is a small character I had created, I’ve made her to be my best friend… my only friend. My entire life I was an outcast. I had tried to be like the others and every time I would get beaten down for it...
