I would have thought that Applejack’s new thing was that she works too hard.
No, not in the sense she won’t ask for help, that ship has sailed…
I mean, she’s a workaholic. In a sense somewhere between Twilight’s Prudence and Rainbow Dash’s Try hardness.
And so I propose that Applejack get an episode where Granny Smith and Big Macintosh insist that Applejack take a holiday after Applejack has a stressful afternoon. But while on holiday, Applejack continues to be plagued with worries about the farm.
…And when it turns out the family are doing quite well without her, she begins to freak out about where she belongs, and where she fits in. And she tries getting another job, but it only exacerbates the stress that her family sent her away to get rid of.
It then takes the full efforts of Pinkie Pie and Twilight to pull Applejack away so she can calm down and enjoy a day off; so she can realize that it’s not her job that defines her. And that sometimes, when her friends don’t need her help at that moment, maybe that doesn’t mean they don’t want her company…
Or something along those lines.
In fact, lets letter to Celestia this thing!
Today I learned that though there are days where giving all the help you can give is a good thing, sometimes there are days where you need to spend some time to give yourself a rest.
Because while helping others is a beautiful thing, sometimes you need to tend to yourself so you don’t hurt yourself trying to help your friends.
And the beautiful thing about friendship, is that a friend will always be there to help you relax and enjoy life, so you don’t wear yourself out.
Your Honest Subject: Applejack.
