In the last episode of My Little Pony, poor Rainbow Dash was struggling to say goodbye to her adorable pet tortoise: Tank. We all know how hard some goodbyes can be, even if you're going to see whoever it is the next day. Sometimes you just don't want people to leave you, or you don't want to leave them. Either way, this theme brought on an episode filled with references and hilarity.
I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to find this episode to be so funny, but I did. RD pulled some of the best faces, the Game of Thrones reference had me in stitches (even though I've never watched Game of Thrones), and the little bit we learned about Applejack towards the end also had me laughing. I will be honest, I was stupidly happy before watching the show, and so I'm pretty sure a goldfish blinking would have thrust me into a laughing fit.
Despite my lack of sincerity for the episode, I can still say that I know how RD feels. It is hard to say goodbye to someone, and sometimes you wish you could just do something drastic in order to stay with them. Thankfully, we have Rainbow Dash to teach us that the drastic solution that we concoct in our minds, doesn't work.
Unfortunately for us, everyone must say goodbye to someone at some point, some people possess the ability to deal with it better than others, some people just break down in tears. Soon enough some of you will be going to university, maybe some of you will be joining the army, or some of you will take a gap year in South America. Perhaps some of you will simply just be moving out of your parents house.
No matter what happens you'll have to say goodbye, you'll be in touch. You may even only be moving next door, but things won't be the same, and it won't just be your family you say goodbye to, it'd also be your old way of life. If that's the case, be grateful that it's only a temporary goodbye, some people have to say a permanent goodbye to family members/loved ones who have passed on.
No matter what the situation is, saying goodbye is hard, and even the strongest of us fin it upsetting and painful. It's not weakness, it's just human nature.
