The Loss of a Genius

“You are not a mess. You are a feely person in a messy world”‘ ~Glennon Melton

I am heartbroken over the death of Robin Williams. This is one paradox of celebrity; the mourning of people we have never met as if they were close friends, but honestly, if there was an actor out there who felt like a friend, I think for many it would be Robin Williams. 

It is always a touchy subject when it comes to apparent suicide and depression, and many people have many opinions when it comes to the legitimacy of depression and the hopelessness that can lead to suicide. I don’t pretend to understand it myself. All I know is you can’t fully understand until you have been close to it.

The quote from Glennon Melton resonates with me, though. If I had a dollar for every time Paul or someone told me not to take things personally, because the world can affect me and make me feel like a mess, but I find solace in this quote and I hope it helps others feels better as well who may be struggling with any number of emotions.
