When I first read about it as the news broke, I thought it was a joke, an odd choice for a joke, but a joke nonetheless. When it became clear that it wasn't a joke, and the bare details were released. It was a shock, to say the least. It resonated with me a lot. I've been suffering from depression now a good 2-3 years, as I imagine others on this site have, or know somebody who does. I've been to the depths, hurting myself as punishment for being the way I am. At the bleakest moments, I wanted to kill myself, I tried twice, but I was stopped bot times by my wife. At the same time I have and I haven't seen the same depths as Robin. His problems were his own, his whole life making people laugh, yet inside he wasnt happy. Maybe he thought he wasn't good enough, or that people just thought he was a joke? I don't know, but whatever his demons were, they were serious.
I'm trying still to overcome my problems, in fact that was one of the main reasobs I came here, to Seibertron. I don't want to go to those depths again, especially now that Robin has gone. I want to get better for his memory.
To those out there that are critical of what happened because of their views or their beliefs. Don't forget that he was still a family man, someones husband, someones father. Your words won't affect him, but it will affect them. Now is a time to look at his life, celebrate it. Watch those movies of his that made us laugh or cry, or cry laughing. No one wants to be remembered for how they died, but the life they led. For those calling it selfish or an act of a cowardace, you don't know what was going on in his mind to even try to say what he should of done. In the times I tried, I was doing it to lessen the burden that I was to my family, to try and make their lives better.
So, farewell Robin Williams, I hope you find peace. I'll think of your family as I know your family will grieve for you as will your fans across the world.
Sorry for hijacking the thread with this. These thoughts have been building, and I wanted to say my piece. Agree, don't or don't care, I stand by what I've posted.
