Robin Williams The Funny Man The Sad Clown

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” By Bobby McFerrin, featuring Robin Williams in music video

Everyone seemed to love this man. He had a prolific media career. Multi-generational.

The reason for this particular post has to do with taking the burden of keeping everyone happy on your shoulders. Who is really the brave one? Who is the coward?

In life, imagine there are a lot of losers and very, very few real winners. Imagine the load on one’s shoulders who has to keep everyone going, keep them happy, keep them sane. You’d have to use so much reverse-psychology just so they think they are actually winning in life.

So the question I present is:

Would you lose in life to give someone you cared a sliver of hope of winning?

Everyone’s miserable and sad, and the guy that makes you happy you won’t let find his happiness. Or when he needs to be sad, you won’t let be sad, because you want him to be happy to keep you happy. It’s kinda greedy, isn’t it?

So would you lose?
