In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.

Mitch Albom, Five People You Meet In Heaven

I think I just want to be happy and in order to be happy or happier I have to let go. I have to let go of the things and the memories and the people holding me down. I want to do things for me and by doing that I hope to better myself and be myself. And I can’t keep hanging on the things, memories, and people that make me torn and sad. And I can’t keep wasting my time frustrating and worrying myself for people who don’t even matter. And I just have to get out there and find things and do things and be with the people that let me be me and that make me smile and that makes me grow

I just wanted to get that out there, sorry not sorry for the run-on sentences. And finally, thank you.

Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.

We need to forgive ourselves.
For all the things we didn’t do.
All the things we should have done.
I always wished I had done more.
I used to beat myself up over it.
Now I see that never did any good.
Make peace.
You need to make peace with yourself.

I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.

robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t.
