They will say:
He had a spark.
He made me smile.
He made me laugh.
He was more than a face in the crowd.
He will never know what he meant to others.
But is that just Robin Williams, or isn't that all of us.
Depression tells us, no matter what anyone else has to say, it has exclusive rights on the truth. But depression tells us lie after lie. Depression hates you more than anyone else could. Depression repeats and multiplies all the hurts the world dishes out.
Depression does not know your true value.
No matter how loudly depression shouts, there is reason not to listen. Please know that whatever hate it may spew, you are worth more because you are you.*
