A word about Robin Williams.

Let us not forget that for the genius he was, he also pushed people away. No one pulled the trigger; he was heard, but in the end he made the choice. We all have a list inside, and when we get to the end of it, is that last item enough to hang onto?

Don’t let it happen: Make the hard choices, be humble, forgive others, forgive yourself for being imperfect, for stepping on others’ toes, for hurting others feelings. Even those close to you.

Suicide is a choice. Depression is not a disease: It is a struggle, and we allow ourselves to be alone, we push away and blame when we choose not to face our weaknesses. My sincerest condolences to the Williams family at this buy diflucan online time. I don’t know the circumstances, but I know the fight.

Suicide is selfish, even in the worst times. That is the uncomfortable fact. Hold on to family: No price, no talent, no valuation in this world can purchase a loving heart. To be rich is to have that; I know it.

I have plans to publicize my own works, but unlike many I choose to delay for a time in respect. Can’t we just pay attention for a second? Ponder our own beings? Make good choices when the cameras aren’t looking? Lend a hand and not retract it at the first slight? Be a little more, a touch stronger, braver, more sincere and honest.

Let us try. We have only ourselves and each other to fail.
