It Was A Drive By Fruiting....

My post today was going to be about struggle but a different kind of struggle, one that you take to the pavement to work through, but in the midst of the news yesterday I chose to write this instead.....

As I write this I am sadden. I am sad that the world has lost a great comedian yesterday.
I could tell you all the things that Robin Williams was, but I'll tell you what he was to me. He was a person that could make me laugh in my darkest hours. His movies got me through some of the saddest times in my life. I remember watching Hook with my siblings after a particular chaotic night and we all were brought to laughter by his antics. The sadness that had happened was forgotten for a couple hours. I still laugh and quote Mrs Doubtfire. "It was a drive by fruiting", WELL HELLLOOO!  Patch Addams, Jumanji, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Aladdin, I could list them all but wikipedia can do that for me.

I loved his movies and I loved his humanitarianism, but I also understand his laughter through his pain. There are many people out there that smile the biggest and try to do so much for others because they themselves are hurting so much on the inside.  That laughter and helping others helps dull the pain they are feeling themselves. While it is still not confirmed how he died, they are thinking it was suicide.  There is always so much judgement that comes along with this type of death.  I think it's hard for people that have yet to live through it or who have known people that have lived through it to understand. They can't understand that you're heart is breaking and you feel absolutely hopeless.  They feel like there is no other way to live and that the world would be so much better without them in it; as a burden.  I say this before you judge.....stop and think.  Put yourself in someone else's shoes.  Just because you may be able to handle the weight of the world it doesn't mean the next person can.

                                   This quote has been on my mind for a while.   Can anyone really make you feel alone?  Or do you already feel this way and occasionally encounter those that reinforce that emptiness?  Everything you feel, think and see is already within you, attributing it to another person is merely a denial of yourself to yourself.

With that being said I want to make sure that people know that their is always someone out there willing to listen. Your struggles may seem like a mess you can't possibly clean up by yourself, but that's why we're given friends, family, and even strangers....to help us; when we can't do it by ourselves.

Now you're free
