I always find it interesting to observe people’s reaction to bad news, in this case the death of Actor Robin Williams. I am sure a large majority of us, more than most may think, have pondered the thought of suicide, even if only for a moment.
The comments thus far about Robin Williams’s death have been negative from some and fortunately uplifting from many. Sometimes necessary thoughts start churning in your mind and they are meant to come out so they can be free and peace can flow.
For those who have been negative and judgmental about what suicide is or is not, or how life should or should not be, my prayer is that may anyone contemplating suicide never seek solace in you as a friend. We need to be better listeners, and less advice givers. We all fall short…….
I read a quote one time that sums up how our relationships should be with one another,
“We are not put on this earth to see through people. We are put here to see people through.”
I am thankful everyday for the unconditional love that has been extended to me throughout my life. Thank you my unconditional loving family and friends. Tonight my necessary thoughts needed to escape.
