Can we talk about this post?
Sure, they tried to be cute here.
But it isn’t cute.
Robin Williams was a huge part of my childhood. I always admired him, the quotes from his movies were ones I quoted the most while playing (“Price check on prune juice Bob, price check on prune juice.”)
But he’s not free.
Killing yourself doesn’t make you free. It makes you dead. This whole thing hits way to close to home for me. I’m a person who is always smiling and telling jokes and making other people laugh who also has problems with depression. Everyone who’s so shocked because “he was so funny”. I wasn’t. It doesn’t make the whole thing less sad or less tragic. It also doesn’t make him weak. Those of us who have problems with depression know that it’s a constant battle, and it’s terrifying to think that one day we might lose. Sure there are small battles we lose a lot more often than the big battle. The battle to get out of bed. The battle to go to school or work. The battle to pay the bills, to take or to not take your pills, to eat dinner, to eat breakfast, to clean the house, to go out with friends, to get dressed, to shower. There are so many battles, but the biggest one is if we feel like it’s worth it enough to stick around for another day.
And I would like to honor Robin Williams for lasting this long. I would like to thank him for sticking around long enough to teach us about wishes, and the power of poetry, and about death, and the dangers of animal testing and pollution, and how family is important, and to believe, and so many other lessons. And for me he taught me how to laugh.
But killing yourself doesn’t make you free.
Please believe me.
It ruins your chances of ever being free.
So saying “Genie, you’re free” is an insult to his struggle.
It’s an insult to everyone who has ever lost the big battle’s struggle.
It’s an insult to everyone who is still fighting.
So please, keep fighting. Death isn’t freedom. It’s the end of any hope of freedom.
