It doesn’t matter whether we’re ordinary, or we live in the public domain, it’s still the easiest thing in the world for us to comment or pass judgment on another person’s life and circumstances.
But unless our life is perfect, I’m not sure any of us are really in a position to comment, but that is exactly what we do. As individuals, only we really know our circumstances and what we have to deal with and if there is anything we can do to challenge or change those circumstances.
When we’re on the outside looking in, it doesn’t help us understand the thought process behind the history and what that person has had to deal with, as Robin Williams and Peaches Geldof’s case has shown. I’m really not sure any of us are in a position to judge.
