Have you lost hope in life? Have you ever thought of giving up and tried taking your own life?
A very bad news greeted me this morning. Robin Williams is dead. I was stunned.I was shocked to know he suffered from depression and eventually took his own life. According to police investigators it was suicide by asphyxiation.
How can one of the funniest man in the world die so sad?
Robin had almost everything. He was an Oscar winning actor and comedian. He came from a wealthy family,went to Juilliard, and even served his community. He inspired a lot of people through his talent,humor, and his genuine soul. How can he lose hope completely in life? Why he committed suicide, we could never know with certainty. We can only speculate. He was loved by many and he must be deeply missed. May he rest in peace. My heart goes out to his family and friends as well as to all his fans all over the world. 😦
Now, what really is life? What is its meaning? What is it really that makes a man happy, hopeful, and content in life?
If you are contemplating on killing yourself, STOP. Give your life another chance. Do not entertain negative feelings and thoughts.Refuse to believe the lies you have been telling yourself for so long. If you have been struggling with depression, talk to your family, friend, pastor, counselor, or consult an expert.
Most of all, why not ask and trust God to help you. You are not hopeless. You are a person of value. You are precious. You are deeply loved by the Most High. He can change lives. He can turn your mourning into dancing. He can give you hope and a future.
Let me quote a verse from the Bible ” Cast all your cares upon HIM for HE cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
