Trouble is, there's no one who can.

We are all slaves to our brain chemistry.
Unfortunately, some people's brain chemistry will cause them to be depressed more than normal.

Years ago I had a friend who also hung themselves.
It was Christmas eve when he did it and his live in girlfriend found him Christmas morning.
Yes, he sometimes related that he was depressed but don't we all feel like that at times?
Besides, most of the time he seemed happy .
So, no one though anything of it.

The moral of all this is to take someones depression seriously.

Depression results from the fact that current collective humanity is insane. Sane people, in this insane world, suffer as martyrs and comedians...

This is not a statement of opinion.

"The World According to Garp" was always one of my favourites.

My best memory is where it all started, in the show Happy Days; I just happened to be watching the episode - I was not a regular viewer of the show - where Mork first set foot in the world ... and the performance just blew me away totally, I couldn't believe the persona, and verve of the actor - who ... is ... this ... person ?

Years ago I followed a symposium about (self) motivation and such. The presenter used Dead Poets Society as a case study. Great role of a teacher by RW who motivates students.

BTW Just heard Lauren Bacall also gave up the ghost. What's the world coming to.

I've also had depressed friends commit suicide. It's terrible but the reasons they have sometimes looks very trivial to us but to them it's 'everything in the world'. Why can't they see things like others ?......sometimes I think it's meant to be that way. We will never understand it. So sad for us but hopefully they are out of their 'miserable cage' and let free in another world....maybe!

Default Rest in peace Robin

At the very least he is free of all the nightmares & demons that he talked about so honestly and graphically in his interviews.

When my mother died and I was trying to come to terms with the stark reality of life and death a great friend explained how he felt when his mother died....
He said "Think of your earliest childhood memory, now go back a few years before that...Where were you before you were born, before you were conceived, where was your mind?"

At the very least Robin & all who have lived and died are now in that calm and safe place where there is nothing at all, nothing to be frightened of and therefore no fear.

For all those who believe in a higher form of life after death with a greater awareness and consciousness that is a beautiful and comforting bonus!
RIP Robin.

And let us not forget his Family especially his children who have to live with this for the rest of their lives, time will only ease the pain but never heal it.
