Name: Robbin Williams
Nickname: Robin McLaurin Williams
When your life is no longer funny, its hard to figure out who you are.
Robbin Williams is a 62 year old, American Actor, Voice Actor, and Stand Up Comedian. Robin has brought us great laughs over the last couple of decades. Iconic movies like Jumangi, Dead Poets Society, Jack, What Dreams May Come, and Good Will Hunting will forever be etched in our minds and souls. Let’s not forget about Mrs. Doubt-fire, a classic with an upcoming part deux. Over the last couple of years, he has made the press on his recent divorce with wife of 20 years, drugs, and trying to sell his iconic home in Napa Valley due to either family and or money trouble. How could someone who had worked in so many great family movies, be in the press for such unwholesome attributes?
Psychosis is alternative contact with reality that usually entails false beliefs, and or delusions towards oneself, one’s surroundings, and others.
I was recently reading an analysis on a publication from the British Journal of Psychiatry that concluded that comedians are more likely to suffer from psychosis, and or psychiatric illnesses. Psychosis is used as a defense mechanism in order to deal with the attributes of pain. As I swift through the biographies of a couple of my favorite comedians, I realize that many of them have endured a significant obstacle in their lives, and have turned to making people laugh to escape the pain and receive acceptance. One of the main reasons why comedians have a recurrent theme of depression and or addictions in the later stages of their lives, is because the people whom they deflected to by making them laugh, are usually no longer there.
Its unfortunate that Robin William’s life is turning for the worst. Hopefully, he can go to counseling and deal with those inner daemons in his life. That is something Jim Carry had to do many times in order to keep himself and family together. Bernie Mac, and Chris Farley both died of overdoses trying to suppress some inner unresolved conflicts. Its a recurrent theme. Lack of growth in an area, with always catch up with you.
Have a good joke today. Just make sure your still sane when everyone stops laughing.
