    I completely agree. It's not about Parelli, it's about YOU being strong and able to get over such a sad situation and keep doing (and progressing) what you are doing.

    I am glad to hear you found something to pull you through a rough time.... some people turn to alcohol or drugs, and you learned something new. I am sure meeting goals has increased your confidence and it is always good to learn how to stand up for yourself. Keep up the good work and god bless you for not hating your parents for their mistakes :)

    While I agree it is one's self who chooses to change, I know for me I wouldn't have been able to learn and develop and change like I have if it hadn't been for Parelli. I'd still be impatient and all those negative things. The principles in Parelli showed me how to be better and more 'balanced' and yes, I was willing and commited to the change and the learning....however I wouldn't be where/who I am today without it :)

    I am a bit different to you Spirithorse, I am where/who I am today because of the character flaws I have had through my life, because of the mistakes I have made and because of the tragedies that have occurred in my life. I don't do drugs, I don't do drink and I don't do religeon, I don't believe that anything external can give me what I need to be a "good" or "better" person. This is my own view point so feel free to disregard - I just believe that if anyone needs something outside of themselves to define them then they can never be truly happy. I don't like to see anyone think that with out "Parelli" they would be nothing.

    Wow Savvylover, good for you for taking something that had a certain philosophy and using it to make changes in your life. I predict your life will get better and better. A lot of people cannot take resources and use them to make positive changes so you are way ahead of the game.
    Sounds like your dad really loves you. I don't understand mothers who miss the whole purpose of being a parent, it is to put your children before your own needs. Funny thing is though it will pay off a million times over in the long run.

    Agreed.

    I do believe that working with horses is an excellent way to build confidence and create a sense of responsibility.

    That's probably why so many prison and "brat camp" horsemanship programs have found success. For many of the inmates, it may be one of the first times they've actually been responsible for the caring and well-being of something other than themselves. There may be instructors to telling the inmates what to do, and why, but it's the horses that truly do the teaching.

    Same goes for working with horses on any level. Don't sell yourself - or your horse - short when it comes to giving credit for overcoming the obstacles life has thrown at you.
