THAT was exactly what I was going to say. Sometimes it's disheartening to hear someone brag about this expensive thing or that that they have or can have or do, but at the same time, I've been a working stiff my entire life and everything I have I worked my butt off for including the $2000.00 debt I put myself in yesterday buying Butch back from the place he was sold to.
But ya better believe I worked my arse off for ALL of it and my stuff might not be designer, my riding clothes ALL come from second hand stores, but I love my horses like no one else can and I've worked hard every step of the way.
Don't feel down, feel PROUD, because all of this just makes you stronger. And when YOU are the one working for YOUR stuff, no one can ever disappoint you by not letting you have your way. Those others may get what they want by asking... You, as someone who works for everything, get what you want by BUILDING and struggling. Be proud!
