Kind of makes me wonder how real that scene might have been except perhaps Robin was actually saying it to himself?

The scene resonated deeply with me as well. It was also the scene that convinced me that Robin Williams deserved the Oscar. When they hugged, you couldn't see his mouth, but the power of the smile in his eyes was cathartic.

Back when GWH was out in theaters, I was in the throes of flashbacks and intrusive memories. My wife took me to the movies to cheer me up... and must have sat there thinking: "Great. I took him to see a movie about an abused boy." Footnote

Smc Your struggling with it because it's hurting inside. We all get why it hurts. You need to get it out so your body can heal from the trauma. You will feel better when you do. What happened to us so many years ago doesnt have to define us now.

I believe Esposa captured the thoughts. Enabling is giving the tools, be it liquor, drugs, moral support, covering up or financial support, to allow the toxic behavior to continue. I also believe enabling for some becomes part of their lives through
