I really hate to be posting this and all, but there is this one person at my barn, one year younger than me, that thinks she is perfect and can't be happy for anyone but herself. If she has a good lesson, she brags, and if she does good in a show, she brags, and it just puts a damper on my mood. I have politness grounded into me, so I ALWAYS compliment her and her horse, and she doesn't even say it back to me
And, all the adults think she is an angel because she is a suck up, and they adore her. If only they knew...
Yes, I will admit I am a little jealous because I work ten times as hard as she does, riding six times a week where she rides once, and she gets tons of attention and she just doesn't deserve it. I hate to be one of those people that is really jealous, but I just don't find it fair. Plus, I find her distracting because she makes me feel competitive and I lose focus. Just yesterday, me and my horse jumped 3'9 for the first time (it was so wonderful
) and she rides in the next lesson and jumps the same thing. Now, I'm dreading seeing her because I know she will brag and bring me down. The worst part is, I bragged to her too yesterday
I'm just as bad as her when I do that, but I couldn't help myself. I know I should just focus on me and my horse, but it's hard.
So much drama...
Well, this was my rant. Please don't say that I'm making this worse (although I probably am
) I just wanted to get this out of my mind and see if you guys go through something similar. Thanks for listening! Oh, and hugs of you read all of it! :)
