RIP Robin Williams (1951 - 2014)

"Suicide is a decision made out of desperation, hopelessness, isolation and loneliness. The black hole that is clinical depression is all-consuming. Feeling like a burden to loved ones, feeling like there is no way out, feeling trapped and feeling isolated are all common among people who suffer from depression."

"Until you've stared down that level of depression, until you've lost your soul to a sea of emptiness and darkness... you don't get to make those judgments."

Rest in peace Robin. You've brought a lot of joy and laughter to the world. It is a pity the one thing you brought to the world was the one thing you needed the most to get through the depressive state you've been battling for so many years. I hope people will take depression more seriously, and not just brush it away and pretend it never happened. Sometimes you pick up the pieces, but they never seem to fit perfectly.
