Things we can learn from the ponies... Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2511794

I feel that, while we often talk about which pony we like the most, or debate things, we don't really stop to think about the things we can learn from the ponies as a whole!

Why, I am mostly a fluttery pony... And while a Fluttershy set of sensibilities is what comes naturally to me, I feel that I can learn a lot from other ponies, too!

Like Pinkie! By enjoying her character, I've found that it's made me a more courageous pony. How about yourself? What sorts of things have you learned, not just from your favorite pony, but from the other mane cast ponies, too?

I have learned from Applejack that you do need to give in to your siblings sometimes

I've actually learned a lot about myself when analyzing the behavior of Pinkie Pie.

Fluttershy is my favorite pony, but I'm more of a Pinkie Pie, the random guy of the group, and basically when I saw her freaking out because she thought her friends were leaving her, I realized she was acting so random because she felt uncomfortable with herself and felt a deep need for other ponies' love.
And when I made the connection with my own behavior, before I knew it I had tears in my eyes :/

Sometimes, we can learn interesting things from the ponies about ourselves. They may or may not be "canon," much like fanon Princess Luna, but that doesn't make those connections any less special.

Perhaps that is one of the things that makes our favorite pony show so very special.

Dashie helped me get some courage, and basically helped me become a better athlete. may not count as learning something but it made me learn the fullness of my potential :3 ... she's only my second favorite. Fluttershy's my favorite because i can see myself in her, it's a little scary how much the same i can see sometimes, like the extreme shyness around people who i don't know, and the sudden ability to raise to the task when needed :P

That is such a great lesson to learn, warp. I really like how you worded it, too! A pony doesn't need a mark, a label, or even know what they want to do with their lives to be original, loving, and fun.

File: 132162576446.png (111.31 KB, 243x319, twi is happy.png)

i don't think i've learned any one specific thing from any specific pony, but since i started watching the show, i have become much less critical of others.
i used to be very rigid when it came to a lot of things; i used to think that there was only one way of doing things and that my way was not only the best way, but the only way, and i would get in people's faces about it.
i've recently come to terms with the fact that i am not always right, and there are other ways of doing things, and i attribute this mental growth to ponies.

when I watched party of one, it was like rewatching an important lesson in life, except in a different way.

I've had experiences similar to pinkie, and the lesson I learned was that you're don't usually mean to hurt you when it seems like they are. And they hold you more important than you may think.

the lesson party of one delivered was to always expect the best from your friends. It sorta made me think, "I never thought of it that way..."

While I am most like Applejack (The accent, looks, and the whole country lifestyle), I realized on the inside I'm like Fluttershy.
When it comes to me and my boyfriend, and things get tense between us, all I want to do is curl up and become invisible. I have trouble trying to talk to him and start to give up, then I think Applejack would buck up and say what she has to. Even Fluttershy stands up when she really needs to.

I took the following from the mane 6...

Twilight Sparkle made me remember how much I love reading books and the discovery to learn new things. I'm also learning not to constantly assume the worst case scenario when things don't go as planned.

Pinkie Pie has shown me see that the world doesn't need to be gloomy if you make an effort to spread happiness.

Fluttershy helped me realize that being sensitive is okay, but when worst comes to worst, overcome your fears and don't be afraid to speak your mind.

Applejack also reminded me about being honest with others, yourself included.

Rarity reminded me that some sacrifices are worth making for those you care about.

Rainbow Dash has shown me true friends will accept you for you.

Hmm, hmm, what have I learned from this show?

To be even more accepting than before (seems everything I get into of late is like that). I've always been the level-headed, moral one of the group, and this isn't the only thing I've gotten into that's made me love & tolerate even more.

More outgoing? Not so much. I like my privacy, and hate being misjudged, so I let people get a feel for my personality before I tell them anything, and I mean anything about myself.

I've learned from all the Mane 6.

>Twilight
I've learned to be more studious and to follow what I love. I can't say that I've taken it to heart, as I just KEEP procrastinating though.

>Applejack
Honesty is the best policy. I've learned to be more honest, and tell less lies to everyone I talk to. (Oddly, I would tell lies, even when the truth was perfectly fine.)

>Rarity
Can't say I've leaned anything from her...
I'll try, I'll look into some episodes for things :P

>Fluttershy
A deep love of nature is what I've had all my life, and that's why Fluttershy is my 2nd favorite pony. Her kindness also inspires me to be as kind to everyone that I meet as possible.

>Pinkie Pie
Laugh! Be happy! Love! All of these I've stood after throughout my life, and I will always until my dying breath.

>Rainbow Dash
Be confident. Believe in yourself, and believe that you can do anything you set your mind to. Be outgoing.

It was dead already, and I kinda killed it with my.... 13 posts in half an hour?

Although...

>>2511851

This reminds me of something I posted a while back, though I think I'll modify it a bit, since it was kinda slapped together in a rush while I was half asleep, and looking at it again, it got to be kinda gibberish at points:

As I've said before, I'm very literal, but rarely serious, and I'll try and explain why here.

Being serious can stagnate the... Elements of Harmony from entering into your life. Being literal on the other hand leaves a lot more room for this than most people imagine, viewing literal and serious as one and the same.

Here are the examples for you:

Honesty? Both Literal and Serious work here, but when you're telling the 100% truth and can toss in a joke, the other is more likely to take your honesty well.

Kindness? Literal: You're being obvious about your helping hands, and at the same time have the ability to toss in humor for added kindness, improving their mood. Serious: Serious kindness often comes off as forced, and as such should be avoided. Kindness begets kindness, but only if people feel you're being... Honest about it.

Laughter? Honestly, when I first started watching this show, I felt laughter was kind of a weak idea for an element, but then, I started writing this post, and realized that it was quite the opposite. When people are laughing, they're happy. Where happiness happens, bonds happen. Where bonds happen, friendships are born. A literal joke is completely capable of be hilarious, and some of the greatest jokes are factual Avenue Q's "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," Lewis Black, whereas serious and humor is really kinda opposing things, both being capable of being emotional states, and all.

Generosity? Literal: When people see a lighthearted, Honest gift, it goes to the heart. Serious: They will take the gift, but become suspicious that you will turn around and expect something for it later.

Loyalty? Literal: People are more likely to believe you're loyal if you've established Honesty, and true loyalty is frequently reciprocated. Serious: People may find you abrasive, and it will be more difficult for them to accept you for who you are, though loyalty is the least affected by this.

Friendship is Magic? Literal: This is one topic where you're not supposed to be literal, at least, not in the fantasy sense of the term. For literal to work in this context, we must view it as "mysteriously enchanting." What makes a friendship work can be an absolute mystery to some (I know I have a few that make no sense), and yet, it just works. But at the same time, if you try to take your friendship too seriously, well, it's a slippery slope toward positive alliance, and you have to watch yourself.

So, take a more lighthearted, literal look at your situation. Love your friends, Tolerate your enemies, and never, ever let yourself lose your head.

For me, the ponies themselves don't do the teaching. It's the fact that each episode is like an essay, where you know by the first 5 to 6 minutes what the moral is, and then the show gives examples, then unlike other cartoons, gives a valid conclusion to the moral of the episode. If I had a dollar for each time I pondered each lesson or when I thought "remember that one lesson from that episode? This is where I should apply it" I have never seen a show do this. AT ALL

I know this is cliche, but from all the ponies as a whole I've relearned the importance of friendship. Everything that was taught to me in elementary school that I disregarded because I felt I was "too cool" makes sense now. When you're a five or even a ten year old "being cool" means you like dirty jokes, skateboards, pretty harmless things. When you're an adult "being cool" is the domain of those who peddle drugs in front of department stores and make it scary to go outside at night. I feel like I've learned an important life lesson from the mane cast and all ponies: that it doesn't matter how cool or tough you are. The noblest of goals in life is to live to the fullest, have fun, and have friends.

The world would be a much better place if we truly internalized the lessons we were taught at age 5.

Cliche nothing, that's a good thing. Learning is how we grow, and anyone who believes that they have nothing left to learn has learned less than anyone they know. It's good to hear that you've learned these lessons at all, though I am a might disappointed that you aren't used to shows like this. Not by you! No, by the media. Shows like that were everywhere when my siblings and I were growing up, and there's about a 5 years gap between me and either of them, me being the youngest.

I must agree, but that's not what society tells us, and humans are as sheep.

Well there were shows, it's just that society (and family) dictated I shouldn't like them and if I did like them then I shouldn't draw anything from them because they were girly. I was a weaker person then. Now I'm on my own, a more able person in the skills of self-reflection and being comfortable with myself and my own interests. That's not to say that I'm going to wear pony hats and/or shirts when it's not appropriate like some fanbases do but I'd be comfortable going shopping on a weekend or visiting my grandparents and not care.

That it's mostly my own fault and I create my own problems through hate and intolerance. I grew up with cartoons where it was allways the bad guys fault. This left my mind confused and in lack of self awareness. In FiM there are allmost no bad guys. The ponies create their own problems. This realisation has given me the key to the prison of my ego.

Right, even if we depersonalize it a bit the lessons still hold true. The ponies make their own problems and through friendship solve them. There are no bad guys because even if you don't have friendship, cooperation is a good backup plan.

This is why discord was a bit jarring for me. He was kinda irredemable from the get go, born of his very nature. NMM was her own fault, and learned from it, while Trixie/Gilda were their own fault too, but the didn't learn anything. Discord... Was a plot device with excellent lines.

Oddly enough, I think it was Rarity that influenced me to start dressing nicer. I always wore a plain t-shirt with jeans before, but lately I've taken to wearing a nice vest and a fedora with a classy button-up shirt. Also had to do with going off to college and wanting to look like a good student too. But when I was shopping for the clothes it was like I could hear her voice in my mind telling me what I'd look good in. X3

There's a certain subtlety expected when you express that sentiment in semi-polite society.

It's like the difference between, "I want to lay you down by the fire," and whatever your filthy mind filled in this blank with.

I'm a bit of a prankster and I like to lightheartedly rib my friends (naturally Pinkie Pie is my favorite pony). Luna Eclipsed and GtBO kinda reminded me to remember not to be thoughtless with your teasing and jokes, and keep people's sensitivities in mind. Kind of ironic considering people hated on Pinkie in LE for being insensitive.

Biggest thing I learned from Rainbow Dash is to be a bit more competitive. Not only in the "Must Win" attitude, but also being the best - not for others but for yourself. I've always disliked how lazy and accepting I am, and since my conversion to bronyism I've tried to be better at a lot of things. I've even become more physically active and continuously trying to beat my previous milestones.

I think Applejack's hardworking attitude is rubbing off me too, and when I begin to slip up I kinda imagine her giving me a pep talk... *cough*

Rarity has taught me the value of looking good, not in a vain way - just look after yourself. I've been feeling a lot better about myself too.

Twilight has taught me the value of learning. As they say, you are never too old to learn. I've always loved that saying but I kinda apply it more now.

Now if I can just get Fluttershy's kindness to rub off on me I would be gold.

For me it's to be more positive and appreciative in general, I'm a pretty pessimistic person, MLP is one of the few things I've been watching to try and make me less so.

Tears of a ValedictorianCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2511889

It has made me try and resist the urge to take the easy way, instead of the kinder way.

Like, the other day I went to a concert, and my friend had a spare ticket. My first inclination was to tell him just to sell it to a tout and forget about it.

But then I thought how it'd be way nicer to find a fan and sell it for face value, even though it'd take longer. So we went round the streets and bars looking for someone who actually wanted to go. And I have to admit, it was ponies that made me push past the lazy option.

I have become much more empathetic, and I am beginning to see what's really important. I haven't hugged someone in forever... and I forgot how much strength that can give you. I think I'm learning what's truly important... and I hope that's worth it because I should have been studying for the GMAT.

I think we can learn a little from all the ponies, but we tend to learn the most in the areas that we're lacking. For instance, Pinkie reminded me how important and worthwhile it can be to lift another person's spirits and to do everything with a smile in hopes of getting one in return.

Maybe I'll think of some more. If I do, I'll be sure to post them here.

I have learned to live life with a smile and make those around you happy. Pinkie Pie has deeply affected my life in ways I didn't know possible, I have a more positive out look on life an people, I have learned to understand my friends more and respect them and have overcome my fear of heights (with a hop, a skip, and a jump).
There has been one bad thing, I can't enjoy scary movies with my friends anymore, I can't help but laugh my way through the thing.

I want to be more like Rainbow Dash. She's dedicated and can push herself towards a goal, where I tend to give up and victimize myself.

As great as the show is, I've learned even more from the fandom. How to practice love and tolerance towards haters and how to SUCCEED in doing so. And how you can enjoy whatever you want without worrying what others think of you.

Pinkie Pie taught me to go at everything with insane, unrelenting enthusiasm, even in the most pressing of times.

TracerBulletCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2511914

Nopony in particular taught me this, but since watching the show I find it much easier to shrug off insults. Mentally, I'm all like "Bitch please, that's not how we ponies do things around here."

Whereas before I was relatively quick to anger, often screaming unheard of abuse at those who upset me. Sometimes even chasing them to try and hit them.

Ponies have really fucking mellowed me out.
