^A friend of mine on another network was very sad at the passing of Robin Williams.. I wrote this – it helped him, maybe it'll help you a little:
HIS hero, comedian Jonathan Winters, whose style directly inspired Robin Williams, was famously known for his chronic depression.
I think the reason some people get into comedy is to run away from the sadness inside.
I can make you feel a little better: I look at it this way: He probably lived for MANY decades longer than he might have, if he didn't fight it successfully for so many years.
In other words, he could have committed suicide at a young age, but he didn't. He fought hard.
In the process, he made a lot of people happy. He did the best he could – and he did a lot.^
