We as humans naturally seek to be accepted and treated the same as everyone else. Yet, everyone at some point in their lives has felt rejected and maybe even bullied in some way whether at home, in school, or at work. Why, then, do we do to others what we wouldn’t like done to us?
Disconnect tells the story of the severe consequences that can occur from bullying. Ben’s story particularly moved me because I hope that he would wake up at the end of the movie but he didn’t. I think that wanted to show us that you will never know when what you do will go too far.
We never know what a person is going through nor what could have just happened to them. Let’s let go of our 2% difference and embrace our 98% similarity. So I CHALLENGE you to smile or compliment at least 3 people during your day. Whether those people you are going through something bad or not, I’m sure you will make their day a bit brighter and you might even save a life.
Let’s stay connected, together.
