12 Life Lessons From Robin Williams

I watched What Dreams May Come with my best mate on on Saturday night and we were chatting about what an amazing soul Robin Williams was.  The fact he’d come so far through his drug addiction and depression was something we found inspirational and his creativity was awe-inspiring.  He’s played so many different characters over the years, all endearing for various reasons.  I really didn’t expect to be writing this at all so soon but sadly, you never quite know what’s around the corner.

Robin Williams tragically took his own life on Monday 11th August 2014 after a long battle with depression.  His wife, Susan Schneider, has released the following statement:

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

So let’s have a look at some of the great life lessons from Robin Williams…

1.  It’s important to surround yourself with the right people and if you can’t, it’s fine to be on your own.
