This blog is an addendum to my previous post in memory of Robin Williams regarding depression. Apparently, the star was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was on medication to help slow his symptoms. In addition to Robin’s struggle with severe depression, the medication he was taking for Parkinson’s disease came with a side-effect of suicide. In any case, it is a sad state of affairs for the former entertainer to be cut down with two dreaded diseases, but more poignant that he was unable to heal his life. Parkinson’s takes otherwise bright and articulate individuals and places them into a progressive inability Continue Reading…

This post is in memory of Robin Williams. We have lost a remarkably brilliant comic mind and acting legend. He had a unique ability to connect with people and with his exquisitely immense humor, despite his own personal struggle. Despite 20 years of sobriety, Robin was about to get help again for his depression. Sadly, he never made it back to the path of healing and chose to end his life and the pain that was too heavy for him to carry any longer.

One thing you can count on is from the beginning to the end, you will have many moments to hold on and then ultimately, have to let go. This process Continue Reading…

Live what you want to teach the children and young people around you. That goes for your own self-care and all communications including listening and use of language, messages, and behavior in general. The truth is that kids, whether yours or others, (if they know you and relate to you)- will in some fashion look up to you as an authority figure and an adult. Even older teens and young adults need people to look up to, to learn from (whether positive or negative) to reinforce and exhibit how to “be” in the world. You teach with words, and mostly by example. You, as their elder have a responsibility to convey core values, such as honesty, mutual respect, personal pride, and personal accountability as examples of the best set for those younger people around you. But all in all, your role as someone older, wiser and more mature is to accept and support, lead by example well and not disregard, exploit or manipulate the smaller, emerging young people who need leadership and guidance.
