Depression is a silent disease in your heart and mind. It can devour your hope, stomp on your intuition, and relinquish the fire in your chest. To anyone who hasn’t gone through depression, it might be difficult to understand. I wish Robin Williams could have looked at anyone in his inner circle and grabbed onto them like a lifesaver. That could have kept him above the surface, maybe even long enough for him to find reasons to stick around. My thoughts are with his family.
Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. May your spirit find its way safely back to shore.
