Hi beautiful Blussh sisterhood. It is late, and I can't sleep. I am overwhelmed by many feelings. The most prominent being derived from a broken heart over the news of Robin Williams, taken by suicide.
What a sad moment, when someone surrounded by such darkness feels no other answer than to escape life; they can't think of anything worse than living another second more. Robin, I know how depression can grip you unawares and make you feel like you are suffocating; it is oppressive beyond words can explain. But I am devastated that you couldn't see the hope anymore. You will be greatly, greatly missed.
Robin was one of the most loveable characters on and assumedly off screen. He oozed comedic brilliance, wit and a genuine depth of nature that is hard to come by. He had a wonderful and unique gift of bringing joy to those who watched on, in a way that most superficial performances can't master. It was often like a big, warm hug to see you on screen.

It is hard to believe he suffered with depression.
This is a good reminder to stop looking inward, and look out to those we love around us. Is someone close by in need of help? We all go through hard times, but depression can so easily go unnoticed.
We need each other in this life. We need the love and support of our family and friends to keep us balanced and remind us about the importance of LIVING and loving!
Be the inspiration!
