Update on myself and my feelings on the show

I tried to fall asleep but I had many thoughts on my mind that I wanted to just explode onto a blog post here so I can feel better about myself after talking about it. I've been thinking recently that I don't know exactly how I would feel about MLP:FiM ending very soon. It's somewhat of sad thought since it is a show I have invested a better part of half a decade into and the community behind it. Of course they will be a community behind the show even when it ends for good but it is still a sad thought since I don't want the show to end nor I want the community that the show used to host dwindle away into nothingness. I can't really be the only one who feels this way either, I hope. This place especially has been great to me and it has gotten me through a somewhat hard time in my life, even now. I have been stressing endlessly about not being up to pay with finishing my schooling and getting a job. I'm quite frankly pretty scared that I won't be able to achieve what I want to achieve so I've been actively pushing it off and procrastinating when I should be giving it my all. I don't know why I procrastinate and just put this off but I know I need to do something and I'm quite frankly just scared to do it. Anyways, back to my main point of this blog. I am very grateful for a community like this, I've been hopping communities for years trying to find the sweet spot in between it all and to be fair this is one of my favorites. I've met some people on here that I feel comfortable to talk to and I don't have to hide behind a facade of shitposting either to achieve it. I consider this place my little spot on the internet and the people who interact with me daily really bring meaning to my life.

Thanks anyone who has read through this but I just needed to expel all my thoughts into something somewhat coherent.

I understand the way you feel completely. :rarity: I have only been in the fandom for a little over a year, but I find the thought of the show ending sad. G5 is coming, but based on what I've heard so far, I'm very skeptical about its chances of being good – at least to the extent FIM has been. Without intending to sound overly dramatic, I'm not sure when and if I will find another show I enjoy as much – it had been years since that last happened.

And what will happen to the fandom concerns me even more. People keep talking about fandoms that have survived for decades, but we have no idea if bronies are one of these – fandoms like that are few and far between. I definitely hope the MLP fandom is here for many more years. What you said about the show and fandom getting you through hard times completely applies to me as well. Around the time I found the show (and later the fandom), things weren't good. I essentially found myself back in square one after realizing the plans I had for myself weren't going to work out... And even worse, I felt very lonely. Making friends has always been difficult to me, so I can say more than a year later that finding this community was the very thing I needed to feel better. I've made friends with so many amazing people here – thank you for being one of them! :rarity:

I think that the fandom has already overtaken the show so to speak and what i mean is that there are many people using this forum who dont even watch the show anymore, like me because when we have found like minded people and start communicating the bonds dont just disappear because the show ends or atleast that is what i think

I dont know of any statement that 100% indicates when FiM is going to end.

There is the hope that G5 will be set up in a similar way, considering the success of FiM.

I joined the fun 'late'. I wish I had joined sooner but the chances are I would have been a troll because thats what I was before I joined this forum pretty much. On other forums I broke alot of rules to stroke my own ego and I was out of control with how I acted. I really screwed over alot of my friendships in the past, and it was because of my interest in mlp, or rather my crappy roleplaying skills which I ruined alot of roleplays because of that. I've since improved myself and here I am today, without a single warning or infraction and I intend to keep it that way. I'm accepted here for what I like and who I am, like I couldn't have been on other forums and places I have since left in the dust.

Back to the show itself, I admit I was never really all that interested in it in the first place, mainly for the villains and such but I realize it brought this amazing community together, its kind of a shame the show will end soon but it's what it is. No use in moping over what you cannot change, just accept it and move on and cherish the fondness you had. These forums are on a decline, but we ain't dead yet. :toldya:

You're not alone Taze, I perfectly know what you mean. :kindness:

I'm not a fan of that kind of changes, as from my past experience, in most cases it didn't end well. From one point of view there was some hype for all the new things, but in the end it simply wasn't the same. I understand the life goes on, for everyone, for everything, but I do hope this community will stay for longer, even though we keep seeing members leaving one after another, heh... :rarity:

What @Error 404  Member Not Found (NO OFFENSE THERE x3) said is true though. I haven't really watched the show for three years now, I'm here mostly for the pony universe, for Equestria, for the community. But it's not that I lost interest in the show, I just... I don't even know... I have many other tasks to choose from, that I can't get myself into watching these. :P But each time I bump into an episode or something... I'm instantly hooked- the love is still there, I just need to trigger it. ^_^ I swear I'll get to this at some point, I have to. :derp: Either way what I wanted to say is, that without constant official news (in form of episodes of whatever) it is totally possible to enjoy being in the community. :) Though from some point I'm kinda afraid, that G5 might split us into groups. :twi:

Either way whatever would happen, I'll stay 'till the end. :) ...Of course unless something in the community itself will make me not want to stay, you never know. :adorkable:

It's just good to be here, to see you all, to be the part of it. ;) 
I'm just addicted to these forums. Just call a psychologist already! :D 

I'm happy to hear you value these forums; let's just stick together. :fluttershy:

while i'm not here nearly as long, i do find it has become my secret place where i can post anything freely,on top of it beeing a very nice and troll free comunity, having no one i know irl in it makes it even better.allowing me to post how i feel for certain topics,without hurting my folk's feelings etc. and now for the actual topic..
i love fim, and i will be kinda sad to see it go, but i'm also hoping that G5 will be as good, and will bring a fresh air to the comunity, many will be dissapointed, no matter how good or bad it may be, but it would surely be something to talk about and spark all kinds of conversations and comparisons, all in all, i don't think it's that big a deal, it's not ending, just stepping into a new generation
