Earlier I read about Robin Williams death and that it was most likely a suicide, apparently he was suffering from severe depression. I'm sad about this. I could never call myself a fan of his, but all I can say is that I can remember how nice his movies made me feel. His movies had this optimistic touch and like a buddy of mine said: "No matter how f*cked up life can get, there's always something good somewhere, you just need to look." and I totally agree. And I got so concerned because I've been going through depression myself. And it's something very hard to explain.
I can't believe this because the image I had of him: Someone happy, optimistic and lighthearted; I can't believe he wanted to take his own life.
This led me to think, how many of my friends and relatives out there are feeling the same? How many of them put up a smile and act cool while inside they're crumbling down? I know the feeling, maybe my issues are not that much of a "big deal" like his, but still...
Please never skip the chance of giving a smile to someone, greeting them, hugging them, helping them. You never know how can you brigthen that person's day. It does make a difference.
And if you're going through something like this, please hold on, please stay here, because you are not alone. You can get better. And don't be ashamed to ask for help. I can't do much myself. but if anyone needs at least someone to listen to them, I'm always a note away.
Hope you are all fine.
