I have not written anything since Monday. I did work out Monday and Tuesday and then got injured on Wednesday. At the same time, Monday night was tragic and made me think a lot about the last seven months.
I am slowly healing my leg so that I can start working out again on Wednesday. My heart is going to take longer to heal. A lot has been said about the tragic death of Robin Williams and I have no intention of trying to define it or look for a reason because I know there is no reason.
We have no right to even begin to think we know why this happened. Hard days come and go, medications might interfere in the normal brain function. We will never know why this happened and there is no reason to dwell on the horrible parts of life. If it turns out to be true that the medication he was taking for Parkinson’s made his depression worse, I am not surprised. I had a similar situation with medication that was meant to heal my stomach ailment. What I want to give people is time to reflect.
It is too bad that celebrities feel like they live in a bubble and they cannot trust anyone. It is sad that people befriend celebrities so that they can get their payday. I don’t understand why some people do this. If I have a friend, I don’t see any amount of money being enough to betray them, unless they committed a crime or need help for an addiction. At that point, betrayal might be the only way of getting them help and I will be more than happy to do that to the appropriate professional. The thing is, that is what you do for a friend, famous or not.
There are going to be hard days. Days when you feel like the world is going around without you in it. There will be days when reality seems to hard to handle. It is ok, this is life and we are meant to learn as much as possible. The biggest source of sadness is when our expectations of life do not meet reality. We have choices, like working on making the two meet, dream other dreams and let those go or to get sad and depressed. There are just as many solutions to cure depression and not one option works the same on different people.
For me, what works is working out, consuming more fruits and veggies and talking to a mental health professional. Medications don’t work well with me. Besides, I don’t like medications. That does not mean that my solution works on everybody. Do what works for you. More importantly, talk to somebody.
Don’t feel that because of who you are, you can’t talk to somebody and work your way out of the bottom you are in right now. Get help. Do you have other options to depression? Leave your comment below. Thanks.
