When he walked out, he was confident, kind with PG13 humor. He had such great charisma and personality. He addressed everyone in the audience with such sincerity and curiosity. We had a moment when I asked a couple questions about "Writing and Memoir." His kindness connected right with me and he gave me this amazing response identifying his strengths, weaknesses, and editors remarks/comments. This man was so incredibly kind and supportive. I felt his support more than most people in my immediate environment. He cared about his audience, he cared about his words, and he cared about himself.
Where is all this going? Danny Tanner changed into his real self. In his book, he revealed his deepest, darkest secrets, exposed the truth, and identified with who he had become. As he said, it was "cathartic" for him and I would also add "liberating." The vulgar behavior was stemming from the desire to rebel against a "perfect self" that he definitely was not. This man started a new Chapter of life with this book by addressing the past, his present, and the future he wants to have.
This was just me the psychoanalyst in love with people saying "Yes!!!"
Let people live in their own skin and be who they want to be. This is an example of what happens when you do. This man was glowing, happy, caring, and you could feel his positive spirit. This was not the man I heard of in LA. He started fresh with a new coat of paint! This is what Priscilla is rooting for in the life of everyone!
Thank you Bob for that fantastic and completely unexpected discussion. I am happy for your new Chapter in life!
Expect the Unexpected and Remember Everyone has a Story to Tell
What people don't realize is that actors are associated to a character for pretty much a lifetime. Someone will most likely, at one point or another in life, be able to recognize them and comment on their character. Fans have their own perception of how you act, talk, walk, smile, think, behave. Since they know that character-they know everything about you. How do I know This? I have had many interactions with celebrities and friends who were actors. It is just the scene in the superficially stunning-Los Angeles.
Clearly, this is not always the case, but if we can think about the actor-it's not an easy life being compared to someone who is your opposite. Danny Tanner is the opposite of Bob Saget and he makes this clear in his book discussion, "Dirty Daddy." From my psych perspective, it can almost be like a transgender person(not the same at all just a comparison) who is stuck in the wrong body. You eat, dress, walk, and behave like a woman, but your heart and soul is truly a man. Bob Saget did not experience anything with transgender identity, but his real self was hidden by a character that did not represent his true self.
Now, someone is thinking, "Why would you go listen to him promoting a book called Dirty Daddy?" This is some commercial garbage book ?"
If John Stamos was sitting beside him that would be my only reason.
Unfortunately, he was not present. To be honest, I had seen his picture and had no intention or interest in seeing him, but then my psychology heart drew me in.
What happened to this man? It was clear to me with just his book title that he finally decided to stop the bizarre behavior and just identify with his true self. People like this make me very happy and I wanted to witness that...and maybe tell him I love John Stamos ( sincerely the second reason!)
