Robin Williams (0:21)
Once again the message comes through in a very loud, extreme demonstration of profound sadness and loss: “Money and fame cannot buy peace of mind!” If it could Robin Williams would be alive today.
The life of an artist/trep is truly about self-motivation, self-dependence, self-confidence, self-validation and self-discipline. That delicate, fragile “Self” is your fervent advocate and your unwavering devotee. Take care of her. Keep her healthy. Keep her strong. Keep her clear thinking. Keep her alive so she can keep contributing her own brand of worthwhile, crazy genius to the world.
“If you think your life is complete confusion because you never win the game, just remember that it's a grand illusion, and deep inside we're all the same.” —Styx, “The Grand Illusion.”

| Robin and Suicide |
When I heard of Robin William's death, I actually had to pull my car off to the side of the road to cry. My youngest brother was also brilliant and died of an overdose: he was depressed and had professional help, but what he did not do was ALLOW his family and friends to love him - he rejected their help and efforts as intruding. He openly cursed those of us who were financially stable. A very well-off brother of mine also has depression and drank himself into oblivion, ending up with cirrhosis of the liver. Depression is in my family. People who love you are truly overwhelmed. I hope that you will try to find peace, accept your illness and make the best of your life. Love yourself enough. Don't know you but care.

He was a giver, and I think that makes him vulnerable to pain and artists are..a different breed, no matter how people try to downplay their uniqueness. It should be embraced and cared for, because in their element they make living for everybody a much "funner" experience. I will miss his sparkly eyes... Rachel

Dear Robin, Thank you for the love and brilliance you brought to our lives. I wish you could have been feeling how much you are truly loved and appreciated. Now you are free of the pain, and can see clearly all the hearts you have touched. The spirit is eternal, and we will see you again. God bless you Robin.

| Help & Support |
My other rant of delusion really speaks truth from my standpoint, money could be my main savior, reason being is that I have the greatest parents and support on earth and have been to YEARS of counseling, meds and EVERYTHING available out there for mental disorders…it doesn't work for me! I hate jobs, can't work them anyway so truth is my happiness would be winning the lottery or inherit wealth, period. I crave freedom and adventure and experience that all takes money that I'm too mental to "earn" on my own, so I envy other mentally depressed people who can at least work a job and make money and be kinda happy at least even if they don't achieve fame or wealth. I get that for most all people, but now GET ME!!!

| Robin Williams: Money and Fame |
Like Hunter S Thompson this distressed talented human being was at least able to achieve in life and succeed and have the money and fame to help cover up their misery. People like me with similar disorders and have similar talents that could make millions in Hollywood are in way more distress! More amazing that Robin Williams killed himself is the fact that I HAVEN'T killed myself. Money and fame would sure help me a lot; I'm so ADD and depressed I can't work a job, and can't even get SSI benefits to help, yet I can drum and write screeplays and think of inventions, it's a crap shoot, so if I never get discovered or make money I'm in hell and "deserve" to be more suicidal than many of these success stories that are

Dead Poet’s Society was a turning point in my life. I was extremely motivated to pursue my dreams after seeing that movie. Thank you Mr. Keating. Thank you Robin Williams.

Robin clearly wasn't getting the help he needed. There's a time when being dependent only on ourselves isn't enough, maybe he was hiding his problem, but all of us can't be afraid to reach out for help or reach out to others and ask if they're okay. Don't let a friend be isolated and feel alone. If it's you that's depressed, don't tell people you're okay, seek help! Human beings are a tribe. Call the suicide hotline! Go to a church, synagogue, mosque, just talk to someone!! You would be Missed!
