The reason why I watch FiM and EQG is: Not because I am a Pegasister, It's because I have been dealing with anger issues throughout my childhood. I had an awesome childhood.
But sometimes I felt emotional and I didn't feel like doing much of anything. So I started to watch MLP:FiM because I was curious about it, and now I'm taking it seriously.
The character 'Sunset Shimmer' is very inspiring. Because she had to learn how to control her emotions. (Just like me.) (Except I did not turn into a raging she-demon.)
and both the show and the movies make me happy. Like around the time when the subfloor in my kitchen was being replaced, The episode: "The Saddle Row Review" had premiered and how Rarity behaved in the episode when she was starting to become stressed, Reminded me of my mom when she became stressed about the kitchen.
I highly recommend this show to anyone who was emotional issues or if want a good animated series with excellent writing, a cast of characters that you can relate to, and catchy songs that can get stuck in your head easily.
