The idea of stopping the whole rule following thing. Let yourself be who you are without all the people telling you who and what you should be.
What could be more fitting for horse people?
Before we come along and start telling them what to do and what they should be, horses just are. They are full and complete in who they are, we are the ones who shove issues onto them.
Glennon Doyle talks about letting go of the things that try to force you to conform. I like that idea. How many of us have trainers and friends out there telling us how we HAVE to do things with our horses? People who tell us all the things we can’t do and that we should just stop trying?
Without them it would be simpler to step back from all the expectations ‘those’ horse people and get back to enjoying being with our horses. To find that horse crazy girl again and let her take joy in horse life again. In the spirit of this post (https://www.facebook.com/glennondoyle/posts/10157990570289710) I’m going to follow in her footsteps and do the same. Want to join me?
Unfollow two accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.
Also: In the comments below, please tag the accounts that are supportive, encouraging horse pages, or training pages of some sort, any two pages you love for that matter! So we can share the good ones that out there. The ones that help us find a better path with horses or in life.
There’s too much good to hang onto the bad.
