I have to say, even though I enjoyed tremendously the talent of Robin Williams, his death doesn’t shake my world.
I find more sorrow in the apparent fact he took his own life and that, even as loved as he was, he dwelled in depression.
THIS is what I hope we all take from his death: If we’re really depressed, if we even contemplate briefly the idea of suicide, let’s promise each other to seek help.
Talk with a responsible friend or seek out a professional. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or some other help line. Call 911. Call me.
Getting help to get out of depression is a sign of strength, of taking responsibility. People love us; we owe it to them to not give in to depression.
Take the vow with me and ask your friends and loved ones to do the same.
