Unless we all recognize that we all have imperfections, no matter how "perfect" our lives appear to be.
Robin Williams, like you, like me, had many perfections, probably more than we were aware of. But make no mistake that- also like you and me and every other person on the planet- Robin Williams was imperfect.
He screwed stuff up. He couldn't get stuff right. He lacked skill and talent at some things. Dealing with life was one of them.
I don't fault him for that. I accept him for the wonderfully imperfect human being that he was.
And I hope that can help us all accept each other in our own imperfections.
