you’ll deprive the world.

3youDon’t ever let your life end short or you’ll deprive the world of everything  you have to offer. You won’t be there to hold the door open for the fragile lady, overwhelmed with groceries. You won’t be there to smile across the subway to someone suffering Monday morning blues. You won’t tell your co worker a joke you heard on the radio, or send a contagious laugh through the coffee shop line.

Cause them tears from a punch line, not from their loss. Give them smiles for your future, not from your memories. Give them a hug to hold onto, not to remember.  We’re all given the same power to make a difference, to give our life purpose. We’re all able to make good from the bad and turn a life we can’t stand, into a life worth standing for. Every time you feel misplaced, and lost in a world where you don’t belong, remember sometimes life is about the lives you’re saving, when you don’t even think you can save your own.

  1. I had no idea what a strong influence Williams had on my childhood in the 90s until this happened. Mental illness is a many-level problem and sometimes there is no way out, but that does not mean we must lose hope and we never give up on a fellow human being who is suffering.

    • I completely agree. I think everyone was surprised when they were hit as hard as they were by Robin Williams passing. I feel like mental health is being talked about a lot more however there still seems to be a stigma around it!
