But they’re empty. Why are they empty? Nothing in life should be goddamn empty!!! AAAAAAHHGG!!!!
Today I spent the day watching Robin Williams movies. There is one movie in particular that is a highly underrated children’s movie: JACK, as I was watching it a character said something quite moving- it had me in tears.
"You were a shooting star among ordinary stars. It’s wonderful and passes quickly, but while its here it lights up the whole sky, so beautiful in fact that the other stars, well they just stop to watch."
I was just sitting in stunned silence with how fitting those words were in this particular case with this same man years later. I know we’ve heard a lot about Robin in the past week, but he like so many others suffer with chronic mental illness and the discussion around it needs to keep happening. End the stigma and help the people around you by learning more, helping more and loving more.
Let us all remember to hold people close to our hearts, you never truly know what someone is struggling with- always strive to be the best you can be to everyone. Learn more about mental health, stop the stigma and love always. <3
Normally we don’t get involved with private affairs, but the continued outpouring of grief, praise, remembrance, and love for Robin Williams we’ve seen on Tumblr has been staggering. He gave his gifts selflessly, and was a beacon of sorts to those of us who had a weird time figuring out how our energies and talents fit into the world.
Remember, if you’re struggling, there’s help. We love ya, Tumblr.
And goodbye, Robin. We love you, too.
