When someone like Robin Williams takes his own life, it’s a stunning reminder of how powerful emotional anguish can be. It’s a reminder that profound emotional pain can occur in the talented, the successful, the admired, the well-loved. And it’s a reminder of how difficult it can be to reach someone struggling with depression—especially someone who thinks you don’t want to hear about it.
Perhaps the best tribute to him would be if we all reached out to the troubled people in our lives and let them know that we are here for them. Because Robin Williams was there for us.
