today i read the details of robin william’s suicide.
he tried to slit his wrists but since that didn’t work,
he ended up hanging himself.
i nearly cried at my desk.
along with micheal brown’s murder,
it has been a very sad week when it comes to senseless death.
today the mailroom wolves were having a discussion about robin williams.
many of them said:
“why would he kill himself?
he had money…”
why do people think having money is the automatic cure for sadness?
sure id love to get a good 100,000 right now in my bank account,
but i doubt that would truly make me happy.
it would be great for a little while,
but money doesn’t make you feel loved.
i have talked about me being depressed and suicidal before,
but i don’t think people truly understand what it’s like.
no amount of money,
or sex from your ideal fantasies can permanently cure depression.
depression comes from a glitch in our brain’s wiring .
robin williams was severely depressed and also suffered from bipolar disease.
this snow wolf was in some of the greatest movies,
but once the curtains drew and the audience left,
he was still left with himself.
that can be the scariest thing.
so he found ways to keep from confronting his demons.
cue: his drug and alcohol abuse.
usually you get addicted to something and depend on that to keep you sane.
why do you think most of these attentionistos,
male and female,
are constantly searching for attention online?
always needing someone to “like” them?
in the gym like it’s going out of style?
showing off material possessions?
better question would be:
why are they ALWAYS single?
going through friends like toilet paper?
these people live in an social media world that provides them an escape.
they find love in the admiration they get.
they usually have no talent,
or have a talent and didn’t get their big break,
so they become stagnant celebrities online.
take their phone away and watch them crumble.
if real celebrities are randomly committing suicide,
ones with big checks and even bigger careers,
what makes you think the normal joe is any better?
nothing is what it seems when you are on the outside looking in.
the greatest struggle in life is not loving and being alone with yourself.
no amount of money can help you do that.
