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”

A troubled Society we live today

This Society we live today, is very troubled and in need of a fixing, the way we do this is, to fix ourselves and change our ways, so we can bring to Society the much needed fix, in order to move forward with confidence and the strength to handle anything along our Journey of life.
We all in this Society are guilty of “judgeing the book by it’s cover”, without looking deep within each other and what they truely can bring to our lives and the lives of all within the Society, when we meet other’s for the first time, we may smile to be nice at first, then we proceed to turn our backs because they are not like us? Hello it’s time to stop this full of myself attitude and be more accepting, of all those that are around us.
Everybody wants to come to America cause it is known as the land of oppurtunity and we all want the American dream, but when people from all over come here and now our American soil is flooded with people seeking the same, eventually everything backfires right in front of us, we become bitter and than look at other’s around us with a close mind, instead of an open mind, which makes us judge even the ones we don’t know, before we even get to know them, when we do this it forces us to miss out on everything and anything that may come across our path.
When we judge before we get to know, we are missing out on something that might even make ourselves and our lives better, but in this Society we have become so afraid of the unknown, we don’t open ourselves up anymore, because we fear the harm it may bring, nobody wants to bring harm to themselves, but yet we have all been harmed in one way shape or form, in our past within our lives, the judgeing can be done later when we truely know what we are judgeing.
In the Societies of the past, like the ones before Jesus walked his Journey on this planet Earth, we will find many similarities to our own Society, with the Greed, Jealousy and the full of myself mentality in the forefront, these are the qualities that will ruin a Society, let alone what it will do to Mankind itself, when God sent his only son in Jesus to us, he showed us just how the path of rightousness is the path to true happiness, we in this Society have swayed to a different path, instead of the path of rightousness, much like the Society of before Jesus came to us, this Society is nothing but sadness and pain, cause simply we judge everything in order to keep harm from coming to us, even if what we judge could be good for us and all those around us.
The path of rightousness will find us, we don’t have to find it, all we have to do is, simply be true to ourselves, so we can be true to other’s, this means get to know everyone/everything around us and not judge before hand, stop this full of myself mentality, cause you never know who or what may cross your path, that will help make your path better, which will make all our journey’s better and with much happiness, Jesus showed us the way, it’s time we get back to his lessons, so we all can be happy, while living and walking our journey’s, harm will always find us if we let it, it’s only Saten trying to tempt us with Temptation, but like Jesus when we stay true to ourselves, this temptation will disappear and we all can walk our journey’s of life in happiness, while being strong and better than Societies of the past.

” Temptation will tempt us if we let it, but staying true to ourselves will keep it from harming us always”

” When we are full of ourselves, we judge everything around us, which keeps us from being truely happy”
