Hook – Bangarang

Yesterday Hook aired on tv and I recorded it.  The passing of Robin Williams demanded so much attention because of his good-natured soul and the tragic ending of his life on earth, taken by he himself.  People don’t know how to take suicides because it is unimaginable to most.  Therefore, it results in various reactions globally.  Unless someone has gone through the hell that is depression, it is nearly impossible to fathom taking your own life and seeing no other solution other than to free yourself of the misery rather than walking through that fire yet again.

Unbeknownst to many people who’ve known me throughout the years, I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder when I was twenty years of age.  No one aside from my loved ones has a clue, but to them, the change was palpable and horrifying until I got it under control.  Hell, it took me almost a year to acknowledge the severity of it myself, because I had always been such a strong, lively and cheerful presence.  I was conditioned to feel that I was the life of the party, the strong one, the one others confided in, and there was no way this could happen to me of all people.

Guess what?  Most psychological issues arise in early adulthood and it does not discriminate. Everyone is up for grabs. Anyway, I watched the recorded movie Hook and couldn’t help to think of the happiness this man provided to so many people world-wide in spite of his own unhappiness.  He had the gift of making others happy, laughing in the most desperate of their times, yet in privacy and the solitude of his own space, he could not do it for himself.  I see that as heroic, not weak at all.  He had a light in his eyes that only he could not see and that makes my heart ache for him.

People must come to understand that depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain, and no matter who you think you are, you are susceptible, and that others who suffer from it are by no means weak.  On the contrary, they are the strongest among us, because they have survived it time and again, forcing them to conquer their own minds that are fighting against them, and that takes strength and heart.  I hope this finds someone well who needs to know that no matter what your spiritual beliefs, life is precious and everyday right now may be a battle, but it’s a war worth fighting for, so fight the hell out of it.

Made of Flaws

I am undeniably full of flaws. I know and recognize them all too well. While sometimes they make me cringe uncomfortably, oddly most of the time I fully embrace them as my own. I believe that owning your flaws is the most important step in self-growth. Until you love your own flaws, you will never love who you really are inside. Every mistake I ever made is a part of me, and I am entirely whole because of them.

Three Simple Rules in Life

This morning I arose from my splendid slumber feeling completely rejuvenated and rather spiritedly because it’s Friday.  The fact that it’s payday does not hurt either.  I have been struggling much lately with the fact that I feel bound by many obligations that I feel are inhibiting my dreams and complete happiness. 

I am in need of some serious life changes that require me to woman up and just make and stand by my decisions.  I heard a quote yesterday that was something like, “A weak man has doubts before a major decision; A strong man has them after.”  I am being weak. 

With that said, I don’t want to be weak anymore, and neither should you. Happy Friday!

Self growth

The definition of insanity is essentially doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, which is appropriate for the Insanity workout program, but not for life.  If you continue to take part in the same things every weekend, with the same people, it  completely hinders your self growth. 

 

If you never take chances on new things or people, you will keep getting the exact same results in your life that you get now.  Branch out and meet new people and take chances.  Don’t be discouraged by things you try that aren’t your favorite.  Instead, know you at least tried it and move on to the next thing.  Get beyond your comfort zone to experience life, and I promise you will not regret it.
