i was in the foster care system, and its not an easy enviroment to be in, and it is very easy to be caught up in the...i wish i had a horse like my friend does..or i wish i had someone to love me like my friends parents love them,
it is very easy to be caught up in that...other people call that being spoilt when its not, its simply wanting what you dont have...EVERYONE does it adults even do it
i was given my basic needs, i wasnt able to have wants as they wernt a must need item,
heck when i turned 18 and was out of foster care, DOCS wouldnt even get me a tv, because it wasnt a must need item, they got me everything else but a tv LOL
they got me a stereo for my bday, LOL
everyday at school id think that persons so lucky she gets this and that, my whole focus was on what other people had and what i didnt have.
now as an adult and i am well aware of cost of living...how blessed was i that i had a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, clothes on my back, i was blessed to have my basic needs met.
what olivia is feeling is totally normal for a teen to think this
and id say there is more to her story of why she feels this way..lack of love lack of nurturing, she may have basic needs mets but missing her emotional needs, if she gets this from her horse i feel she needs to be suported rather then accused of being a spoilt brat..unless you have been in foster care and know how the system works, no one has a right to judge her
and alot of it probably cos ppl here wished they had the opurtunity as a kid to have a horse
