2022, you’re kind of being a d*ck.
Seriously?! Bob Saget? Many of us grew up on TGIF (Thank Goodness its Friday) with Family Matters, Full House, Step Up and more. Bob Saget was a staple in our childhood homes. It was good, wholesome television and it always ended with a lesson and usually a hug.
According to everyone on the planet, Bob was a really good guy. Just do a quick Google search or open Instagram and you’ll see tons of posts, tributes and stories about him. The dude made time for everyone and kindness was his jam.
We figured we’d give Bob a proper send-off by sharing what he taught us over the years.
Everyone is important
John Mayer said it best when referring to Bob, “I’ve never known a human being on this earth who could give that much love, individually and completely, to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life and they were a main character in his life.”
Bob loved everyone and gave his time freely, it’s evident in the diverse friend base he had from John Mayer to Chelsea Handler to Josh Gad to Pete Davidson.
What Bob taught us: How often do we use the “busy” excuse as a reason to not call or text a friend or family member? We get so wrapped up in our own lives, priorities and the everyday sh*t we are all dealing with that everything else takes a backseat. How hard is it to take 5 minutes to write a note and drop it in the mail?
If a busy actor and comedian could find the time, then we can take 5 to 10 minutes out of our day.
Say “I love you”
If you were in Bob’s life, he never missed the chance to tell you he loved you. According to his Full House cast members, he ended every conversation with “I love you.”
What Bob taught us: Never miss an opportunity to tell someone you care. You never know if it’ll be your last chance.
Cheer on others
Your success was Bob’s success. As he grew older, he took actors and comics under his wing. He gave them advice, talked to their parents, made connections and watched out for them when they were new to the whole “fame” thing.
What Bob taught us: Celebrate others’ success and do what you can to support them. Take time to share advice, make a connection or just offer support. People will remember the time you made for them.
We don’t know about you, but we hope our legacy is even a tenth of what Bob’s is.
Choose kindness. Be like Bob.
