I wonder why each little bird has a someone to sing to...

Disney movies were often our first exposure to the concept of true love as children.  Love can break the spell, save the kingdom, and change your life forever.  Friendship is another big thing for Disney movies-friendship can change the world.  So lovelorn and lonely Disney fans came to Walt Disney Confessions to confess how Disney films impacted their lives and continue to do so.

Oliver Is Company

As a kid, I grew very attached to Oliver from Oliver and Company. Ive always wanted a cat just like him, hes just so sweet. Any time I see a cat around the neighborhood, I try to befriend them and show them some love, because I never want any of them to feel as frightened or unwanted as Oliver did before meeting Jenny.

Journey To Atlantis

When Atlantis came out, Milo immediately became my hero and I tried to teach myself Atlantean off of the DVD extras and out of my moms Disney Magazine. [x]

No One Dies Like Gaston

I dont think Gaston deserved to die. - And honestly, I think it was mostly Belles fault that he did. I read a fan fiction once that took place after he died, and when Belle returned to the village, the Bimbettes ganged up on her: You had to go marry a prince! Gaston wasnt good enough for you, huh? - In all my conversations that Ive had with my mom about my farcical love life, shes established this one rule: never make a man feel like less than a man. And thats what Belle did when she publicly embarrassed him. Nor do I think he deserved that either. I think that if Belle were really reasonable, she would have tried to be more amenable about it and have drawn a compromise between them,…that instead of marriage, they could be friends first, and then court, and he could learn to respect her boundaries. I also think that his advances were originally harmless, and he was being as charming as he could. Simply because hes the villain, people automatically dislike him. Yes, he was a bit of a jerk. Only after belle humiliated him did he become terrible. But I like to think that perhaps there was deeper motive behind his pursuit of her that his tactless and forward manners overpowered. I think that Belle was indeed judgmental and should have given him a chance. [x]

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
