Let’s take a moment to talk about this man. He’s an amazing actor, he has a big heart which is clear when he shares his philanthropic ways and how he adores his fans. He is kind, silly, funny and beyond adorable. Lovable, modest and ridiculous in the best ways.
I can honestly say that his influence brought back that flame that life, work and bullshit tried to drown. He showed me love in the form of the people that I call friends. He’s shown me kindess and gentleness when his heart opens to a cause and we rally around it without hesitation.
He’s inspired change in me when I started to fundraise. When I purchased a ticket to a play that I’d given all hope on and now I’m planning my birthday getaway.
There’s a reason for this post. This man is just that, a man. He is a person like you or I. He has family, friends and a significant other. He’s looking for happiness and fulfillment which we all chase.
I love this man for who he is. For the constant gifts he gives us and yes, I objectify him at times because he is beautiful and for everything that comes in that marvelous package. I am only human.
No matter who he decides to share his time or life with, I am happy for him. He makes us so happy with the many things he does and he deserves all the happiness in the world.
A happy Benedict Cumberbatch is the best kind.
Remember his humanity when you try to tear him down, when you steal a moment to share with others and when you breach something that we all take for granted and that he holds most dear.
