Fallen off the deep edge……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Really People!!! We have stooped to an all time low within this Society, When we can’t even have a respectful dinner and a roast, to honor each other and to show our respect of one another, without basically taking jabs or psychologically punching each other in the face, this is when you know there is a major issue within this Society and an issue that is in need of a major fix in a major way.

I refuse to give names of those who think they need to take jabs at others for a laugh, as they don’t even deserve the fame of mentioning them in any kind of publication. Now seriously is this really of who we are? Is this truly of who we want to be? I think not, as this is who we have become within this Society and this needs to totally change, before it is too late and we destroy each other from within.

God did not create us to attack one another for personal gain, his vision was not one of hatred like we see around us today, this is not of who we truly are. This hatred thing is on we the people and we the people can end this hatred thing, if only we get back to who we truly are. Who we truly are is full of love, the same love of God that is within us all, the only thing we need to do is, feel the warmth of this love deep within our hearts and souls. This love deep within us, is God’s love for each of us, he does not discriminate, we are the ones who do that with this ugly word of hate.

Years ago within a different generation and a different Society, you had these Comedians that would come to a dinner and roast others of their Peers, but unlike those of today, they would do it with love and respect for the one being roasted. In today’s Society you now have everything being spun politically, with the two political parties doing anything, in order of achieving power over the other. It is truly sad of who we have become, simply because we are even smarter now than then, but in a lot of ways, we have become even dumber then those of Societies of our past.

When we truly feel the warmth of God’s love deep within our hearts and souls, this hatred thing will disappear from our existence, to never show it’s ugly head again. This hatred thing is on us and it is us that need to end it, the way we end it is with our actions and the way we treat each other, showing more love, empathy and compassion of each other, it is not hard, just that we have become too lazy and only want too take the easy way all the time? Nobody wants to truly work for anything anymore, we need to get back to the mind set that, hard work truly pays off in the end, as through the blood, sweat and the tears, comes true happiness, true love and true peace. So as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all throughout any Society can truly laugh at each other, without coming to jabs of hate and furthering an agenda of hate.

 

” The jabs of hate is nothing but us showing our disrespect of each other”

” We of this society have fallen off the deep end, now it’s time to learn to swim before we all drown in the sea of hatred”

” God’s love is within us all and is of everything of who we truly are”

” A true Comedian don’t throw jabs of hate, they know how to do it respectively, so they get a true laugh and not just a grin of sadness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

True Communication among a broken Society

robin

 

Robin Williams was a genuine man, he would put all that was around him, before himself and through his comedy, he knew just how to make us all laugh. What Robin hid deeply inside himself was, the fact that he was dying a slow death, from the Depression he suffered from. Depression is the silent killer, as it eats you from the inside out and unless you truly communicate of the real pain and hurt, then all your true feelings get buried deeply within your soul, so deep that, you then become of someone for which you truly are not.

There are many things that come to us and harm us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, but the silent killer of Depression will eat you from inside out. Being sexually abused will also have you hide your true self deeply inside, as you then become someone you truly are not. The bottom line between both of these issues is, ” COMMUNICATION”. We never truly communicate issues as these, simply because we fear what others will think? We become shamed of the fact there may be something wrong with us, because we then don’t take the time to truly understand of what is wrong, we then get the why me’s and think I am the only one with this issue? Well with the way the hash tag #meto went viral, we can clearly see that , there is way too many that have been affected by sexual abuse and maybe now, we should truly communicate of this issue, so we all can heal, fix what we need to fix, so we than can move forward in peace and happiness.

There is a lot to this journey through life, there is a lot that will bring real pain and hurt to us as well, but if we don’t truly understand of what is happening and instead, suppress deeply this real pain and hurt, then as we become someone of who we truly are not, this pain and hurt will never go away, we may think it goes away, only because by suppressing deeply this pain and hurt, we then numb ourselves, to the point we feel nothing, not even a little prick from a Rose thorn off the beautiful flower.

Robin Williams wasn’t the only one within this broken Society that felt this real pain and hurt very deep within, there are many……..many others that feel this pain and hurt also, we will never truly know just how many are hurting, simply because, we all fear of not only what others will think of us, but we also through the fear, will never communicate properly what hurts us deeply, instead we will suppress deeply the pain and hurt, hide within ourselves our true selves and becoming someone of who we truly are not. This is the sad reality within this broken Society, but because we are all hiding deeply within ourselves, we will never truly feel this sadness and until we do, we will never communicate properly our issues, so we can finally relieve ourselves of this pain and hurt.

Depression may eat us from the inside out, but something made us get this way? Maybe we were sexually abused at a young age? Maybe something else happened to us when we were young, that was very traumatic to us? Whatever the case is, Depression came to us somehow, so instead of hiding our true selves deep within, hiding our true feelings and emotions deep within, we need to better understand this disease of depression, better understand all that may happen to us, so we than can fix what we need to fix, instead of hiding deep within ourselves. Communicate better with each other, as we show more love and empathy with each other as well. So we then move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned, when he created us, and  we  then can be better and stronger with each step, along this journey.

 

” Depression the silent killer, it eats you from the inside out”

” True Communication is the key that will help us all heal from the issues that trouble us”

” When we become depressed something got us that way, Depression just doesn’t happen”

” If one viral hash tag like #meto gets us truly communicating, then social media has finally done some good”

 

Depression… the hidden disease

IMG_20150104_124946

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott can be used in so many different ways, if you change the word Cancer and replace it with the word Depression, it works just as well, It shows that no matter the circumstance of which what your going through, there are similarities that helps us walk our paths through this journey of life.

When we mention the word Depression today, we automatically think of someone being Mental and needs to be in a Facility and locked down? On the contrary, Depression affects around 350,000,000 million people within this Society and most are what is known as, ” highly functional Depression”. When you stop at the Barista for your morning coffee and are waited on by the cashier, you don’t know that this person struggled to get out of bed and with headaches daily? But yet they chat with you on a TV show from last night, they look as normal as normal we think is? The late Robin Williams is prime example, as he used comedy to escape the pain of Depression.

This type of Depression affects more people in this Society than we care to acknowledge. Depression comes from a chemical in balance in the brain and we are all subject to it, as it does not discriminate. You could look on the outside as very successful, with plenty of money and a very good job, the big house with a family and all the toys, but yet you suffer in private with major headaches, troubles with keeping it together and a low energy level that sometimes has you struggling to get out of bed in the morning.

Depression is the silent killer, only because we suffer in private and we don’t want others to know that we are less than they think we are. It could be some one close to you like a family member, a close friend or a co worker, you don’t know who could be suffering from this silent killer, which is why we need to always show our empathy, that is within us all, with each other, as just maybe we can help without knowing, someone get through their day, much easier than other days they may have.

Just because someone on the outside looks very well off and is always going on a trip, or looks like they have a lot of money, doesn’t mean they are not struggling on the inside, you are not inside them and can’t determine just by looking. They could be a very high Functioning person with Depression? For us to judge them and alienate them cause they are not like us, is wrong simply cause you just don’t know. There is to much of this judging going on around us and reason why we see all this ugliness within our Society today. If we could only just get a long, show more empathy of each other, just maybe we all could walk our paths of this journey through life in peace and within true happiness everyday of our existence.

 

Depression is the silent killer, because the ones who suffer are afraid to come our as being different then the rest of us”

” As a high functioning person suffering Depression, you don’t have to hide behind closed doors anymore”

” The next time you go to the Barista, don’t just order your coffee, share your empathy as you might just be helping someone out”

” Depression is a chemical in balance in the brain and we are all subject to this in balance”

Comfort the Afflicted

robin

 

” Blessed be….. the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God”

 

2 Corinthians 1:4

 

Robin Williams made us all laugh til our stomachs hurt and our eyes were filled with tears from laughing so hard, he was a great man that not only was funny, but he to cared for all those around him. What we didn’t know of him til it was too late, is that he was hurting very deeply inside with Depression, this depression was eating him from the inside out. We should honor him in a way that will make him smile from above and that is too remember him, as we truly acknowledge that we all have some kind of Affliction that we need to be comforted, so we can move forward on our path of this journey through life.

Everybody ( just look around), is troubled by something but yet we keep trying to move forward like nothing is wrong, this something could be small and trivial, or this something could be causing us such great pain, that we will do anything just to rid ourselves of the pain and hurt. Robin Williams used comedy to hide his hurt and pain, he made us all laugh, even though he was hurting deep inside, this goes to show you, that you just never know what others around you are truly going through?

People that we pass on the street, do we really know what is troubling them deep inside? Do we really know what kind of affliction they hold within themselves?  This is where our true Empathy comes in, so we then can comfort those who are hurting, to help ease there pain and help them over come there troubles. When we truly believe in God and his son Jesus, we then can have faith in them, which then not only will they comfort us from our afflictions, but they will give us hope to help us comfort those around us, from whatever afflictions they are going through.

Empathy is a feeling deep within our souls, when we truly feel this Empathy, then we can share this feeling of Empathy with each other. The problem then lies with the way we walk our paths of this journey and what kind of obstacle we have to overcome, When we struggle to get over the hurdle, is when we then become troubled with an affliction, that brings the pain and hurt to ourselves and our journey, through this affliction we then lose sight of who we truly are, as we then bury the feelings of Empathy deep within ourselves, in order to rid ourselves of the pain and hurt. Robin Williams like many others around us, on the outside looked very normal as he made us laugh, but when he went home and behind the closed doors, is when the pain and hurt would bring him to tears, as the depression would eat him from the inside out. You just never know what others around you are going through, which makes it that much more important to show our feelings of Empathy with each other and help comfort those around you, from whatever affliction they may be going through, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

 

” God comforts us through our afflictions and all we have to do is believe and have faith in him, then the hope will heal us to move forward better and stronger”

Robin Williams had a great affliction that we never knew til it was too late, just as many around us also suffer their affliction and hide it just as he did”

” Comfort the afflicted just as God has comforted us in our time of need”

” There are many that suffer the affliction of Depression, but it is silent and even the afflicted don’t realize it til it is too late”

 

To Truly be who you are……

robin

Robin Williams was truly a special Person, he made us all laugh and smile through the years. From his stand up comedy, to his movie Acting whether serious or funny roles, We were all blessed to experience a great man, who we all admired and liked.

While Robin Williams was making us all smile through the years, he was hurting greatly deep inside himself, the Depression he was suffering from, was basically eating him from the inside out. Depression is a Mental Illness, that we need to take care of, as there are more than we care to acknowledge, that suffer this Dreadful Disease.

This Depression can attack anyone and it does not discriminate, it doesn’t care if you are filthy rich, or if you live on the streets and Homeless. A lot of our Homeless People are Homeless because of either, Society has forced them to the streets, or they suffer a Mental Illness that keeps them from walking their paths of this journey through life properly. Our Government just to make their budgets, will cut certain things to save a buck, one of those things is, Mental Illness, leaving many People to fend for themselves, with no where to turn when they need a Helping hand, so they then take to the streets and walk a very troubling journey throughout their lives.

Pauley  Perrette……AKA Abby sciuto the big star of the #1 show NCIS, is a big Advocate for the Homeless and also reaching out to help them by being their voice. Back a few months ago, she was viciously attacked by a Homeless man at knife point, he said he would kill here, so Miss Perrette went along with him and lied there on the ground in complete Fear of her life. This Man was later found and is now in jail, but Pauley was hurting deeply inside from this attack and only now she is speaking out from it. She is in a much better space now, with the help she reached out for. Unfortunately in this Society not all of us have someone to reach out to at our time of need,  so they then walk their journey’s while they hurt deeply inside, “this Depression does not discriminate”, but we throughout this Society do and is why there are many who hurt deeply inside. Pauly is truly a special Person like Robin Williams, whether in the Television show acting, or in life walking her journey. I just read an article of her finally speaking out after her attack and talking of her attacker. Pauley said that she cried real tears and totally forgives her attacker, now if this isn’t true Empathy, than someone clue me in as to what is.

Now if we all were in touch of our true Empathy like Pauley is, then just maybe this Society would be a much better Society for us all to walk our paths of our journey through life. Sometimes in life we come across great People and two of those great People are, Robin Williams and Pauley Perrette.

 

 

” True Empathy is within us all we just have to feel it, then acknowledge it, so we can then share it with all those around”

” Homelessness is a much bigger problem than we truly acknowledge it is, we all have to work together in first acknowledging it, then taking action to fix the problem forever”

 

The Globes…The Grammy’s…TheOscar’s…oh my!!!

 

Looks like this Duck is staring and Quacking up at all of us throughout Mankind, simply because we pay more attention to Drama and Fantasy, than we do towards actually walking our paths through this journey in reality and just being who we truly are.

There are a lot of great movies out there as well as TV shows, you also need people to act a part in order to make them great and just like in life, you do need to reward a job well done, when the person went above and beyond expectations, so others can relax and sit back to enjoy the show, but when the Media pays more attention to the red carpet and the entrances these Actors make, or what they are wearing, just to create much unneeded Drama. The Media does this so the rest of us will live within Fantasy, thinking ” why can’t that be me” and as we do this, then the Media can simply control us, cause we don’t know truly of who we are.

Most of these gowns and tuxedos really belong to the person who created them, as the Actor’s and Actresses are paid to model them along the red carpet through fantasy world. Then you have the Media criticizing all the apparel, just to simply create more unwanted Drama of the event. Then you have certain ones within Hollywood, that will pull out all the stops, to make the grandest entrance that they possibly can, all this just to be within Fantasy World for one night, instead of truly recognizing someone for a job well done.

There are a lot more everyday Folk that work much harder than those within Hollywood, but yet these Folk never receive any award, let alone become noticed in the way of an Actor/Actress. These Folk never ask for anything, but yet still get caught up in the Drama of the red carpet, so they can escape their realities for one night. It is totally okay to escape reality from time to time, so we can destress and unwind, it is when we can’t figure out the difference between the two, that we may portray to others, a side that isn’t truly who we really are.

I get the fact that it is good to escape our realities for a short time, take time to unwind and clear our minds of the everyday mumbo jumbo……..so we don’t become sick from stress, or having stress control who we truly are. Although for me I would go deep in the Wilderness with my pack and my tent, making a camp fire while enjoying the sounds of Nature all around me, as I feel all the stress leave my body, leaving me totally relaxed with no desire to get up and walk around.

We all have our escapes and places for which we go to in order to unwind and relieve ourselves of the daily stress, some like the outdoors, while others take to a movie theater to get lost within the fantasy coming out of the big screen, there is no wrong way if the daily stress simply melts away, like Winter’s ice on a hot day. We all walk our own paths along this journey through life, these paths are our reality, the fantasy comes from inside our heads and what we make of any situation.

 

” Life is like a jar of Maraschino cherries, when the jar becomes broken, OH!!! What a mess it becomes”

” Life is like the great outdoors when we stay focused and relaxed, we hear all the birds around us singing their happy tunes”

” Life is like the light on our front porch, we leave it on to light our way back home and we can shut or turn it on when needed to”

” Life is reality, as Fantasy is made up to whatever we want to make it”

 

 

Is the glass half empty or is it really half full…………….

robin           Robin Williams was a brilliant, caring and loving man. A man that to most, was looked at as being funny with all the comedies he has acted in.  As Robin Williams made us all laugh for as long as he did, he was hiding a huge part of himself deep within his sole and that part was eating him from the inside out. Depression…… A word we don’t truly understand fully, as this word affects us in many different ways. Most people think that when you are depressed, your supposed to be all alone, your crying a lot,  always sad and almost never smile at anything. The true fact of depression is, you can function and externally carry on like nothing is wrong when you are around others, but when you are in the safe zone of your house Depression will then hit you very hard, you will have many thoughts roam within your head, but none more than the thought of, I don’t want to walk this path of this journey of life anymore.

Depression is the real true silent Killer, it will eat you alive from the inside out, depression will strip us from having true feelings and rob us from our true emotions. A lot of times Depression is triggered by a tragic event that may happen to us, we get lost within the clouds of our thoughts and as we are lost, we then move forward without showing to others around us, that we are troubled and don’t want to show weakness, as we think others will think of us as  lesser. When Deep Depression hits we will do and try anything, to not let it show to others around us, even though our feelings and emotions are not truly protecting us like they would when we are truly healthy. Through deep Depression we don’t truly acknowledge what is happening to us, we bury deep within our souls our true feelings and emotions, so we can function and move forward, as normal as we think normal is.

Shame is a big word right next to the word Depression. when we are full of shame we then become someone we truly are not, when we are shamed we lose our true feelings and emotions, we lose a huge piece of who we are and we hide within ourselves, to try to protect ourselves from further pain and shame. Depression and shame are like faith and hope, You need to have faith so you can have any hope, as you are shamed first which brings out the Depression. But!!! when you are shamed and depressed, you have no idea how to have faith, which leaves no hope in your future.

When we are depressed we don’t want anything to do with anybody, we want to be alone with no one around, basically we want to curl up in a ball and roll away from everybody around us. Then when we do go out and about within Society, we will with a fake self, as our true self is hidden deep within our core, to further protect ourselves from further harm, shame, pain and hurt. Depression will have us question ourselves and why do I feel this way? We won’t even see the glass as half empty or full, as it is only a glass in which to drink whatever is in the glass.

Robin Williams was a very funny Man and could also play the serious role just as good as the comedy role, he wanted to make us all laugh because, he was hurting very deeply inside with Depression and he hid it well from all of us, for which he made laugh everyday, this was his way of not acknowledging this sickness of Depression, hiding his pain so he can try to move forward as normal as he thought normal was. There are a lot of other People out there like Robin Williams, we don’t hear from them much, cause they are not only hiding from us, they are also hiding from themselves as well. In order to be able to help ourselves and those around us, we need to be able to better understand Depression and the many ways it can affect us, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life, as healthy and happy as we possibly can.

” Depression is a sneaky little Illness that will take you over before you least expect it”

” Robin Williams the funny man……but deep within his core he was more troubled than he was funny”

” Shame…Depression…Faith…Hope, these are all words….but these words are more powerful than we really give them credit for, cause we don’t truly understand them”
