"I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions."
You may not like this quote in the recent passing of Robin Williams but it’s something that was said by a woman who inspired me with the humor and honesty in her interviews more than RW ever did with his and I feel the same way about my life as LB describes here.
Both actors experienced loss, pain and days that seemed to be the worst because both were human. The only factual difference in their deaths is that one was natural and one was self-inflicted. It’s equally sad. Their deaths are not a contest. Their deaths are not a platform for you to give your opinion on the lives and detriments of people we did not know personally.
