Ok real talk on Steven Universe: Mindful education
This portrayal of how empathy works and such was simply fantastic. Sometimes we think when our problems aren’t as big as someone else’s, we can’t help them or identify with them. Like in the song, ruby’s one “butterfly-problem” was practically nothing compared to sapphire’s storm, or Connie’s “I flipped a guy” was nothing to Steven’s whole spectrum of issues. But, just the fact that ruby and Connie were able to be there (as the song suggests, repeating “I’m here” multiple times) really nails down how you don’t have to go through horrible traumatic experiences to help or empathize with someone who has.
tldr; everyone goes through crap, but the similar ways we can deal with that crap bind and reenforce us and Steven universe taught that perfectly.
