There is nothing else to talk about today except this. Earlier this afternoon, the world lost Robin Williams, a brilliant comedian, a man who brought humor and love to all, but most importantly his family lost someone who mattered greatly to them. Who they loved. We’ll never know why things played out as they did but the news said Robin Williams had been struggling with depression recently. I’m so sad about his death, but knowing people come here to this blog, I feel I need to use this space to remind people: YOU DON’T NEED TO SUFFER ALONE. And I’m posting tonight instead of waiting until tomorrow morning like I usually do.
Back in March 2014, I posted a blog called THE TRUTH about my own struggles with depression. You can click on the link to read it. As I look back at that blog, I realize I hid that truth behind the title. You had to read it to know what it was about. Today I want people to know there is someplace to call if you are depressed, lonely, need someone to hear you, to LISTEN.
