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”

Diversity is everywhere, no matter where you go……….

            Even as you venture outside in the great outdoors, you will see Diversity all around you. As you go trekking through the wilderness and look at all that is around, you will find that even the plant life has many different varieties and yes they are living and breathing just as we throughout Mankind.  You can see all the different plant life within this picture and the one that stands out the most is the Birch tree in the middle of the picture, what you don’t see are these trees attacking each other, simply because they are different from each other, this is only done by us as Humans throughout Mankind.

Just because we may look different from each other, is not a good enough reason for us to attack each other, whether we do it physically or mentally, there is no reason good enough for this behavior at all. Some of us have different color skin, some may have different faiths, some have different nationalities, this is what’s suppose to make us better from one Society to another, not too mention help us grow healthy and happy, like all the plant life we see around us, when we trek through the wilderness of the great outdoors.

Just because someone looks different than we ourselves, does not mean they are different at all, they do bleed red blood and have all the same features as each of us, maybe one was born or maybe lost a limb from a tragic event, this isn’t reason to make fun of them, or simply ignore their existence, they to have the same feelings as each one of us and they do cry when we ridicule them just so we can look to be stronger than them, they still have a brain and a mind like all others and most of the time, they are much smarter then the ones that are ridiculing them. Then there are other people throughout this Society that are less fortunate than others, they may struggle to find food for their meals, or maybe don’t have a roof over their heads for warmth and comfort? This is no reason to look down on them and put yourself above them, instead we should show more Empathy and Remorse for them, so they can find the strength to be better, instead of just trying to be invisible from the rest of us. We throughout Mankind are our own worst enemies and all the problems throughout this Society are our own fault, whether we want to own up to it or not?

There are many varieties of Humans, just like there are many varieties of plant life, through this Diversity is how we grow to be stronger and better on our paths of this journey through life and we can be as healthy and happy as all the plant life throughout the Forests that we trek through as we explore. The biggest thing that is missing throughout this Society is, there is not enough Empathy or Remorse shown towards each other anymore, instead we try to get ahead of each other, by stepping on each others shoe shine and messing up each others shine, without caring for the mess we leave behind.

Diversity is everywhere as you look around, we all have a purpose on this journey through life, just that each of us have to find that purpose, the problem lies when we are busy messing up each others shine and we get wrapped up in offending each other, some may try to use the race card as a way of messing up the shine even more? I have a NEWS FLASH!!! There is no such thing as a race card, just that we need to use more Empathy of each other, put ourselves in the shoes of the ones we are messing up the shine, so we then can see that they to have feelings as we do. Just as all the plant life sway in the wind without a worry, we to can sway through this journey of life with no worries, when we walk our paths of this journey the right way and clearly see all the Diversity around us, show our true Empathy of each other, than all our paths of this journey through life, will be of peace, happiness and as healthy as we want to be, while the whole Society grows and becomes stronger than the Societies of the past.

” Diversity is everywhere around us, we just have to show more empathy and remorse, to let the Diversity grow in a healthy way”

”  The plant life throughout the great outdoors, has all the same Diversity as we do throughout all Mankind”

” There is no race card, this is a made up card by we the people throughout this Society”

” Empathy is a feeling deep within all of us throughout Mankind, it’s there for us to put ourselves in the shoes of others instead of messing up there shine, just for our own personal gain”
