Just tokd my BO i was leaving.

I am excited about the move, so why do I have this awful feeling in my gut? I've always been a people pleaser in a way, so when I feel like I let someone down, it makes me sick to my stomach. I know I shouldn't feel that way, because I was used, but I can't help it.

I stayed as ling as I did because I felt I was helping him out, but when I figured that he was using me, I stopped having fun with the horses.

I wish this feeling would go away.

I felt I was being used also at the old barn I worked at. Sometimes you just gotta admit to yourself( or let someone else help you see) that you're not going anywhere there. There's plenty of barns out there that want to actually help you with good, caring people. I'm too a people pleaser and I cried for a couple days that my time there was over, but then I found a barn that was offering me a great set-up and I took it. Never been happier!

Out of the loop I'm proud of you!!! It's one thing to go out of way for someone on your terms and if you are happy doing it...it's a whole other thing to for someone to take advantage of your good nature. BUT the most important thing is you realized a problem and YOU STOOD UP FOR YOURSELF! you are the only one that can take care of you! so good for you and as xlioness said above"its like a break up you feel better soon" very well said x. So good luck on your new endeavers and what ever comes next will be even better because you will have a little more confidence to carry you threw the next door! Good luck and Good job!!! (hug hug pat pat pat on the back)

As long as you did it respectfully then don't worry about it. I hate to burn bridges because I never know when I might need to cross them again.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I just my BO that I was moving too. She is a friend, my farrier and trainer. I am moving Hunter to a place 8 minutes away as opposed to 35 - 45. I know she is upset but she has to understand that it is best for me and my horse as I will get to spend way more time with him. As long as you are open with them and keep it friendly and you will be ok.
