A cloud of darkness fell upon Hollywood once again as one of its best Academy Award-winning actor took his own life. It is speculated that the star had been battling severe depression for quite some time now. It’s funny how its always easy to assume that all these stars have everything most people want yet they always seem to miss the little things that makes those who have nothing fulfilled, happy and complete.
I have mixed emotions when it comes to people who take their own lives. I find it as an act of selfishness, especially when the people who suffer the most from this act are the ones left behind. It’s always hard losing a loved one, however losing one from suicide leaves all these unanswered questions. You find yourself grieving one moment and the next so angry at yourself for not seeing it coming. Upset that they did this to themselves, instead of coming to you for help.
Yes it’s easy to say that when you live on earth it’s only for you, but you also live for others in the way that you touch their lives through little things, it can be as simple as a smile or saying thank you. The choices and decisions we make are our own but do affect others one way or the other. It close to impossible to live a life that will not have an impact on those close/next to you, one way or the other.
Robin Williams, hope you are at peace where you are now. Never to be troubled with what life threw at you. Yes I may say what you did was a selfish act, but it does take a lot of courage too.
So, on the lighter side of things here is a list of some of my most favorite Robin William movies that will continue in celebration of his creations~
