I guess my lack of confidence was the result of an endless cycle of ridiculing and bullying when I was younger. I remember in elementary school, the kids always made fun of me for being fat and for having a flat-top haircut. And it was because of that that I grew up being self-conscious about myself. Thus resulting in me not having any confidence in myself as an adult.
To be honest, I’ve never thought of myself as someone good looking. I see a ton of flaws in myself that others don’t see. When I look in the mirror, I still see a fat Ben, the same fat Ben from my younger years, and a Ben that always got picked on because he was a nerd.
Thank you Jose Hernandez and Charles Le for always bullying me when I was kid and fucking up my adulthood.
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
