I don’t have to tell you that the world is in mourning for the loss of the amazingly talented and wonderful Robin Williams. I woke up this morning to the internet in a pouring of emotions in regards to the sudden and tragic passing. I, like so many others owe parts of my identity roles only he could encapsulate.
I found my passion for public speaking and my expression of my beliefs, even if others disagreed with me from ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’, my passion for teaching and learning from ‘Good Will Hunting’ and ‘Dead Poets Society’, my love of the fabulous from and that is ok to be and look different from ‘The Birdcage’ and ‘Mrs Doubtfire’, the reminder that although we grow up it is important to not lose elements of our self from when we young, like imagination and a childlike wonderment from ‘Hook’, also my love for looking at the world with a sociology and humorous gaze came from ‘Mork & Mindy’.
Performers like Robin Williams are the reason I entered into the performing arts and why I am still in it today. I credit much of my inspiration from artist such as him. The messages that I get from this tragedy is that no one is immune to the effects of mental illness, specifically depression. As someone who also suffers from depression I have an idea how he must of felt. Depression is not an easy illness to tackle as many still see a stigma attached to it. Over the past 2 years as I have immersed myself into the performing arts I have met a staggering amount of artists who suffer from depression or anxiety. To those performers, and anyone else reading this, I want to say you are not alone. Stay strong follow Robin Williams by being your most authentic self. If you need help don’t be afraid to ask for it. There are many organisations out there to help. If you are too nervous to seek these avenues out and wish to talk to someone you are more than welcome to talk to me.
RIP Robin Williams you have inspired generations and you have inspired me. You will never be forgotten.
