This scene from Good Will Hunting is one of my most favorite scenes of cinematic history, probably the one that touched me the most.
Robin Williams won Oscar for his role in this, and you can see why as he breaks down the emotional wall Will Hunting has built up over the years with just one sentence repeated over and over again.
Good Will Hunting is a great film. I believe everyone should watch it at least once. I can't recommend it enough. That being said, this post is not about the film but this scene in particular.
You may wonder what just happened with Will here?
Nothing happened with him here, it kept happening all his life and this sudden internalization that none of that was his fault was what caused the breakdown.
We all have this tendency to blame ourselves for everything that goes wrong in our lives, for all those people who left us, relationships that turned sour, opportunities we wasted. Will was also the same, and much like most people who have been emotionally abused, he blamed himself for all his sufferings.
But are we really to be blamed? People who want to leave will leave no matter how good you are to them. You can't stop them, could have delayed their going, but you can't stop things from happening, and thus, blaming yourself for everything is just torturing yourself. You did your best.
I guess we all have this Will somewhere inside of us, and we all need a Sean to make us realize that it was not our fault. :) #goodwillhunting
