In Mindful Education i love the symbolism of the butterflies.
Ruby has a tendency to fixate on one thing and can’t let it go
Sapphire has future vision and sees everything that can happen and can get overwhelmed by that knowledge
Connie has a lot of small anxieties that manifest in one situation that just blows it up out of proportion
Steven’s got some deeper issues that he’s got to deal with
but none of them were belittled in any way, it may look like sapphire has more to deal with (with future vision and all), but ruby has her problems, there’s no well she has it worse you should feel that bad over that one little thing
And Steven and Connie; even though Steven’s feels like he’s done terrible things and has the large things on his plate, Connie’s problem isn’t compared to Steven’s and there’s no competition of “who’s suffering more” and “you’re problems don’t matter cause they aren’t as big as someone else’s”
