Robin Williams was just like the rest of us…

I don’t know about you, but even after a month and a half, I am still shocked and saddened that Robin Williams passed away. I never met the guy, but from the first time I saw him, I fell in love with him. I was mesmerized by his personality, he lit up the screen whenever he was on it, or even when he wasn’t on it and it was only his voice. There was something about him that made me feel like he would make a wonderful father and role model. I thought of him as a comic genius, someone who could make anyone laugh no matter what. Even when he starred in more dramatic roles, he was still captivating. After awhile I thought no actor could match such talent.

After reading most of the article that Rolling Stone put out, I realized that Robin was just like us after all. His childhood was eerily lonely as an only child with parents who were rarely around. Through this, he developed a deep desire to make other people laugh. That is what drove him through life, making others laugh. Over the past few years, his career slowed down and after a show he was to be on cancelled and other movie ideas fell through, he felt like he could no longer make people laugh. His one goal, his one desire, and he never felt good enough at it. Robin never felt like he was talented enough to make people laugh. He was always seeking feedback and encouragement, and was always willing to improve himself.

Robin Williams, this post is for you. You are good enough, actually you’re above and beyond good enough. I hope that you knew God in your life and knew that no matter what, you were perfect in His eyes. Everyone feels at some point not good enough at something, or not good enough at the one thing they are actually excellent at. I just want everyone to know God loves you just the way you are, you will always be good enough. Always.

Love and miss you Robin ❤
