Robin Williams Death
This was a sad week for many of us. Robin Williams was a great talent whose comedy transcended generations. He spent a lifetime masking his pain while entertaining the world. Even though most of us never met Mr. Williams, we were shocked by his suicide. I believe one of the reason we were shocked is, we can’t understand how someone with talent, fame, money and awards, could be unhappy.
I understand that he suffered from depression but I also think there are other factors at play. Society is constantly telling us that if we buy the right things, have a lot of money, receive some sort of notoriety, we will be happy. This is a lie. It’s fine to want those things and enjoy them if you have them but it doesn’t create happiness. Happiness comes from the simple things in life. Happiness comes from within. It is a sense of self love and well being for yourself and others.
In this video I discuss this in more detail and I encourage you to check out my video on “How To Love Yourself”. I share tools I have learned that have helped me love myself and create more joy in my life.
