For someone like me who has severe depression, anxiety and is suicidal this means so much. there are actually many people out there that think depression can be cured by just “Cheering up!”. The ignorance of some people is just disgusting. This is a mental disorder that people who suffer have no control over. Let Robin Williams be a true testament of people who suffer the most, and do everything in their power to make others laugh and feel happiness, just so they don’t ever have to feel as terrible as we do.
If you can, even if you feel like shit, make it a goal of yours to go out of your way to make someone laugh, or to lend them an ear, or a shoulder to cry on. No matter how I’m feeling, I always try to make my friends laugh or cheer them up, because I want them to feel good and laugh and be happy. Be there for someone, because you NEVER know exactly what someone’s going through or how their suffering and you may have to power to prevent something bad from happening.
