With the recent death of Robin Williams, depression has been the topic of many discussions. Let me clear it up for those who are confused. We don’t CHOOSE to be depressed or to stay in a depressed state. It just happens. And during that time, yeah, we do believe death is better than life because life is hard. And though some may believe suicide is the coward’s way out, it takes a lot of guts to do. Why would someone be ridiculed for wanting to end their life, when they weren’t asked to be born in the first place? This world can be cruel and life can be hard. No one should be FORCED to live it. Robin wanted a way out, so he took it. Obviously, lots of money and awesome movies can’t end depression. Only death can.
