This Thing Called Depression: RIP Robin Williams

I have been trying to understand depression for quite some time now and its difficult. I have learned through reading articles and personal blogs that it just isn’t an easy fix. I have learned that no amount of money, fame, nor acclamation in one’s life can stop it. I have learned that it is a very serious disease and we all need to discuss it more. I have learned that people who suffer depression can not just snap out of it. Their darkness may be something I can never understand and it’s not a bad thing for me to be grateful I don’t have the disease. My sympathy and empathy goes out to anyone who suffers from this debilitating disease.

Our focus is on Mr. Williams now because we are all shocked that someone who made us laugh and forget out problems suffered from problems he could not find a cure for. I am hurt by this loss of a man I have watched since I was a child. I watched Mork and Mindy when it was on ABC and not Nick at Nite. I loved his stand up and movies. I’m very sad to know his space is now empty in the world. RIP Mr. Williams

“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not.

The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone.”

Robin Williams

Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
