Thoughts on Robin Williams and Depression

Standard

Thoughts on Robin Williams and Depression.

I’ve wondered for days what I could add of worth regarding the untimely death of Robin Williams. Today in my inbox I received this wonderful post from Nick Ortner, of The Tapping Solution. Nick is a well-known proponent of EFT, a wonderful, quick and easy tapping technique that is used effectively to assist in the resolution of many health and life challenges.

I love this post as it speaks to the depression that Robin suffered from as well as adding great clips of Robin’s work and several resources for EFT tapping for depression, the suicide hotline, depression resources and others.

I went through many years of dark and deep depression and suicidal thoughts. For many of them I was also working, a student and a single mother with chronic asthma so my plate was full. I dropped out of college one semester due to depression. I’d attempt to drive to school and end up in my car in tears before even turning the key to start the car. I managed to stay attentive to my son, but often didn’t really attend to me. Boyfriends and friends left my life, as many do when people around them are depressed. My parents urged me to just ignore my feelings, a tactic they had pressed upon me since early childhood. So I fully understand the pain and am very grateful that I don’t go to those dark places anymore.

I have used EFT effectively since 2000, and love how portable it is and how easy it is to use.

I, like much of the world, experienced great joy from Robin’s movies and the support he gave to the homeless and other charities. His light shone through it all. He will be greatly missed. I truly hope that he is now at peace, shed of the darkness that he struggled with and in a lighter realm freed of the heaviness that has engulfed this planet up until now. I appreciate all he shared with the world and wish that his life could have held more joy for him.

Hope you find this post helpful. If you are facing depression and/or suicidal thoughts, please reach out for help. This planet is going through immense changes right now, for the better, and I’d love for you to stick around to enjoy the wonderful world that is here now and will be even more wonderful in the future. We need your light!!!!
