I am not very good at giving myself compliments so I think this is an exellent mental exercise for someone like myself.
I know that I am smart and that my imagination is great but I would like to think that I am good at other things too. More important things.
I think that the best thing about myself is that I care. I care very much about other people’s feelings, especially the ones I Love. I really hate making people sad or angry and I am very bad at just letting someone stay angry.
I cry at the end of all my favorite movies and would easily sacrifice myself for someone I love. Our horses are no exception.
One of the bravest and perhaps dumbest things I have ever done was when my mom’s horse Nipeta was in a very scary trailer accident and I climbed in the trailer to get her loose. Complety crazy, I know, but it thankfully saved her life since her neck was wrapped back by a halter that did not brake and both of her back legs were stuck up in the air.
To be honest, I think I couldn’t tell you if I did it out of love for Nipeta or for my mom since I know how much they both mean to each other. I don’t know. Perhaps equal amounts of both. All I know is that I wouldn’t have done that unless I cared.
I think I maybe care too much sometimes for my own good since I still after a year can’t talk about Silver without the tears pushing behind my eyes. Nonetheless, what I love about myself the most is that I care.
