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”

There is nothing ugly about this Duck…………..

         OH!!! How the old saying of ” you are an ugly Duck”, really is only just a way for others to be negative of another.

This Duck you see here is as beautiful as beautiful can be, what a tangled web we weave, when we make fun of something that really has such a great life, maybe a bit of jealousy on our parts? I sat and watched this Duck just float around with no worries, no stress and with a care-free life. From time to time it would tip itself with no effort under the water to grab a snack, swim through the water with it’s webbed feet with the greatest of ease, every now and then it would Quack to the other Ducks around it, just to engage in a conversation, yes what a tangled web we weave when we make fun of something, that has a life so simple and care free.

Yes we the people of Mankind are very different from the Duck and very true that we are a product of our own way of life, just as the Duck is of theirs. But to make fun of this Animal and use it to make derogatory remarks of another, is only an excuse and a way to deflect our own pain and shame away from ourselves and on to others, not to mention the fact that we are simply not confident in ourselves or our ability, so we make fun of others to try to make ourselves bigger than we really are.

We to could live our lives as care free as this Duck, okay maybe not within the water? but care free none the less, only we have to live our lives correctly, so as we walk our paths of our journey, we can walk through greener pastures and flat meadows. It don’t have to be Rocket Science, just use more of our common sense, treat each other as we would want to be treated back, when we fall and can’t get back up, we would want a helping hand to be reached out to us, well maybe we should do the reaching first, so Karma will assist us with this hand, when the time comes of our need for it.

Our paths along this journey of life really isn’t that hard, it is us the people that make it hard on ourselves, God created Mankind for us to coincide with each other, not for us to be full of hatred of each other, God’s love is always within us, that warm feeling in our hearts, that isn’t just our blood flowing through it, it is God’s love filling our hearts and when we feel this, we are suppose to share this with all those around us, instead of being selfish with it. or not acknowledging it at all? When we truly share this love, we will find that there is no room for any hatred within this Society and like the Duck, we to can live a care free life, so our paths along this journey of life, will be peaceful as this Duck in the picture.

” Oh what a tangled web we weave, if we only walked this journey correctly, than all our journey’s will be care free and peaceful”

” Quack Quack said the Duck to his Duck mates, as they coincide peacefully together”

” When we live our lives correctly, then all our paths along this journey of life will be peaceful for all”

The shame of life, even when we think we are normal……

“Mankind……. There is so much we have learned, but yet so much more for us to understand and still learn further”.

We all come to this Earth very much in the same way, our innocence and fragile bodies as a young baby soaking everything in along the beginning of our journey. We are so eager to learn and grow into life, that we forget to stop and simply enjoy what is around us. Then we get so caught up with things around us, we forget about truly seeing who we really are, then you add in the fact that some will take advantage of you at a young age, also the life events that happen to all of us, now you have a recipe for disaster.

We are most vulnerable when we are at a young age, cause we want so much to just fit in, we forget about just being ourselves. We do things on the outside, that truly isn’t who we really are on the inside. Most of what we do on the outside, comes from something we don’t take the time to understand and it comes from someone else taking advantage of us, at a time of our vulnerability, it also has to do with some sort of life event, that because of the pain and shame it brings us, we want nothing but rid ourselves from this shame/pain. We then try to move forward by suppressing all the pain and shame away, then we become someone we are not, as we hide the true child within us and not let that child grow within ourselves, so he/she can grow into their full potential.

Shame will come to us in many ways, it will also bring great pain to us as well, shame will make us do things we normally would not and it will change us for the worse if we let it, when we are shamed we will suppress everything deep within, which includes who we truly are, our true feelings and our true emotions, shame will also make it easy for us to numb ourselves from everything around, whether the pain is mental or physical, we will feel nothing cause the shame is controlling who we truly are.

Our journey of life can be so overwhelming from a young age, when you throw in life events and others that will take advantage, this makes the journey that much harder, but if we take everything in moderation, understand better of who we are and knowing better of who we are as a child. We don’t think like this, simply cause we on the outside and that little child within, are learning and absorbing everything around us, when someone takes advantage and because we don’t understand, we think maybe either this is suppose to be, or maybe there is something wrong with me? Now you add shame to this equation and the pain we feel inside from the shame, there is no way we communicate with anybody, so we suppress everything we can to try to make the pain go away, not to mention of the numbing of all our feelings, so we feel nothing throughout our lives, whether physical or mental. When we all truly grow from our young age in a healthy way, that little boy/girl within all of us will fully grow and prosper into their full potential, as we all walk our paths along our journey of life.

” Life is a journey we all walk throughout Mankind, when our inner child doesn’t grow inside to it’s full potential, then we as an Individual don’t grow to our full potential as well”

The White blanket that covers the Earth…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA            This white blanket that is covering the Earth, is Mother Nature’s way of cleaning the Earth, so come Spring time we can see the true beauty of God’s creation.

Every winter here in New England will see this white blanket all the time, but what is unusual, other States within the United States that does not see this white blanket, has done so this year. Now some may not like this as they bicker and complain about it, but if they see the white blanket for what it truly is, they to will see the true beauty of God’s creation.

Winter is a time for all of nature to exhale, so come spring time it can inhale all the freshness, start a new with all re-budding for a fresh and clean look. It is a way for everything to be re-born, so we can enjoy God’s creation as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

We to as Mankind are part of God’s creation as well, just like Mother Nature cleans the Earth so we can see the true beauty, we to can be re-born and cleaned up, as we exhale the bad and inhale the good, to see the true beauty we all hold deep within our hearts and souls, God leaves this up to each of us to do of our self’s, but we have to want to do it and acknowledge the warm feeling of God’s love, that is deep within the heart and souls of each and every one of us.

We will all go through times in our lives that we want to forget, times that shame us in ways we can’t explain, so we then try to suppress this shame and move forward while we become something we truly are not, we take for granted things that could help us with this shame and become stubborn throughout our lives, instead of reaching out to God for his guidance, he does listen to our prayers and sends us signs for us to see, so he can guide us to the path of righteousness, all we have to do is inhale the goodness around us while we exhale this shame and bad that has come to us, while we do this God will fill our hearts and souls with the warmth of his love and it is up to each of us to acknowledge and truly feel this warmth, so we can not only love ourselves better, but share this love with each other, so Society will be better and truly see the true beauty of God’s creation.

Everything we do and everything that comes to us along our paths, happens for a reason, we have to find that reason understand better of the why’s, so we than can exhale and inhale properly, truly feel the warmth of God’s love inside us, stay true to who we really are, share our love of selves with each other, so we all can walk our paths of our journey of life peacefully, to be better and stronger as we coincide with each other within our Society.

” God’s love is always in our hearts and souls, we just have to acknowledge so we can feel it and unleash its true power”

” The white winter blanket of Mother Nature is to the Earth, as God’s love is to each one of us throughout Mankind”
