Why Does Depression Is Rampant IN Our Society, Why Are People So Unhappy…

Saddens me To think how so many people that Can make us Laugh through their art work, Are so Sad Inside…

looking for information on how to best write this post, I found a very old quote…

Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter. – Friedrich Nietzsche”

And it sounds so true…

That if we really look at who we are as human beings and really look at our existence, we are so meaningless, cosmic dust…

It was in this insignificant nothingness that God decided to express his greatness…

Because even if we think of ourselves as nothing we can experience so much joy and happiness and awareness of life…

I believe in God, and I believe that there is purpose for everyone here, I believe that purpose is what gives this, short existence, meaning.

So,

It saddens me to heard of people who have the power to bring so much joy to others suffer from such conditions as depression and anxiety…

Inside they are sad souls…

Today we lost a great actor and comic Robins Williams, one of my very favorites…

I’ve always admired his work, “Jumanji” “Good Will Hunting” “Mrs Doubtfire”…

I think I’ve watched everything that he was in…

I loved his craft, his jokes, and the man’s work overall…

there are no details or specifics as to how he die…

all we know is that he has committed suicide and that he had been suffering from severe depression…

A Lot of Comedians suffer from this condition…

Some Say that Smart and Depression go hand and hand.  I don’t know I would agree with that…

But That’s what Gets you… right…

When you hear the news that someone, you admire and that you consider that has it all, compared to everyone else decides to take their own life…

so,

Why could this be that comedians would suffer from depression…?

Stephen Fry suffered from depression…

Jim Carey suffered from depression…

Dave Letterman confesses that he takes a mild anti-depressant  

is it because they can only find happiness making other people laugh, but can not find happiness when alone….

or is it something that affects everybody because of the kind of world we live in…

I remember when I was Younger and was so depressed that I was almost killed by a car…

I was so sad, that my life had no meaning, I had no purpose, no social life,

I had been clean from drugs for five years, but felt so alone and destitute….

I wanted my life to have meaning, I wanted to be better, I wanted to be a different person,

I asked myself questions like:

What is this all for…

I am going to die a nobody…

I am alone…

I never really thought about killing myself because my religious beliefs…

But I wanted the second coming to happen right there and then…

I wanted the rapture to happen so all my sorrows be taken away…

(I’m of christian beliefs and this is what a christian beliefs, the second coming and the rapture)

But in a way…

I was thinking of a way out…

A way to stop the suffering.

I think That Faith and Educating Myself On What was Happening Saved Me…

Now I choose to focus on what I can do…

On what Is on my control…

I choose to focus on the positive things life has to offer…

There is enough negativity in the world already…

Now what we must do is enjoy the short life we have on this planet and create a legacy…

live a life worth remembering…
