"I do not define myself by how many roadblocks have appeared on my path.
I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads.
I do not define myself by how many disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness and faith I’ve found to start again.
I do not define myself by how long a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have loved, and am willing to love again.
I do not define myself by how many times I’ve been knocked down.
I define myself by how many times I’ve struggled to my feet.
I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has emerged from the fire."

"My God is not a God who forgets His promises. My God is one who fights wars in defense of his children, and His wars are never without hope. My God is a God who moves mountains, and forms the hearts of all men. My God is one who levels the playing field of all hearts, dealing out the grace that not a single one of us deserves. My God is one who sees every woman as both a mother and a daughter. All contradictions, all flaws, all pain."

"Close your eyes.
From Hook to Jumanji to Dead Poet’s Society
With wonder and fantasy and passion
Your joy became watercolor poetry that filled
in the sun and made people everywhere
believe in themselves and believe in life.
We’ve seen you weep and stand on a desk to view the world differently.
We’ve seen you fight for what you wanted and desired.
Maybe these were just characters, but you brought them to life.
I don’t know your middle name or your wife’s name or how you felt the first moment you realized you were famous or the first time you felt alive,
but I know you were sixty-three when you felt the desks collapse and
the walls close in and suddenly we remembered you were fighting a battle, too.
Suddenly we feel an absence we hadn’t felt before.
Suddenly we feel a sadness we do not know how to describe.
We’re all fighting battles and we realize that with your passing
and we’re sorry you had to leave.
You made us laugh and you made us weep and you made
us stand in our movie theatre seats and raise our fists to a life worth living.
OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN, we will remember you."

Depression: Why people don't seek help…

thecaffeinatedramblings:

Early today, tweets started appearing that Robin Williams had died from an apparent suicide. Within a few minutes, more established news outlets were verifying the story.

It seems unreal.

How could the man who brought us Mrs. Doubtfire and brought Peter Pan to life take his own life?…
