An observation:
In the U.S. at least, we lack very many models for community, kindness, healthy relationships, and difficult conversations.

Much of our entertainment is centred around individualism, vindication, and meanness.
All I came up with was Sesame Street and Mr Rogers.

We need more obvious adult examples of people who work to be kind *and* make mistakes, apologise, navigate aspects of identities, experience systemic oppression, set boundaries, experience anxiety and manage it, etc.
I’d love to see content single people having full, fulfilling lives without centring their existences around a fatalistic quest for love or an obvious infatuation with their careers (which is what their nagging friends blame their lack of monogamous romantic love on).
