One of the things strongly connected to us being pessimistic is the low-self-confidence. Sometimes, we believe that we are not good enough at something and that we will never be simply because we do not trust in our abilities and we tend to underrate ourselves. It is a problem that a lot of people have, especially when they are teenagers where they go through a lot of important things in life, which are decisive for one’s life. One of the biggest help for these teenagers has been horses.
Not only for them but for people from different group ages who have channeled or negative feelings, including doubts and insecurities while spending time with their horse friends. Other people. who were born with disabilities or illnesses that have affected them throughout their lives, have shown an even bigger progression in them. These are the people who need to be told and taught that they are capable of doing anything and that they are not much different from everyone else.
This is a huge struggle that they go through, to try to live their lives like everyone else and that is the reason why these horses in the video below help them do exactly that. Dr. Temple Grandin, a leading expert on autism, noticed that there are a lot of similarities between people with autism and animals.
This isn’t meant to compare these individuals with animals in a negative way; rather, Grandin noticed that both groups think almost entirely in images. Animals and those with autism are extremely visual. While those without autism can form lasting bonds with animals, imagine the special connection those who do have autism can form with them!
This means that folks on the spectrum are a little more comfortable with animals like horses, who are more reserved, intuitive, and even a little anxious. People with autism may struggle with social queues in their everyday interactions, so horses, with their ability to communicate nonverbally, can help them. Dr. Grandin observed a shocking improvement in these people with autism, hence, he is suggesting the same therapy for every child/teenager who is going through the same thing. Please have a look at the video below to see it in a little more detail.
