Robin Williams — “Words & Ideas”

Robin Williams’ words and ideas brought joy, humor, inspiration, and entertainment to so many people. Yet he, himself, was overcome by despair. So sad.

No matter how good and successful our lives may look to others, we all need the comfort of inner peace and contentment. Life can become unbearable without it.

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”  –Rudyard Kipling


A few more thoughts:  Perhaps we should call it suisad instead of suicide.

Please don’t let yourself get that sad. Sadness is a great enemy of humanity! Never surrender to it. Never agree with sad thoughts and feelings that lie and tell you that there is no hope for you. Fight them with passion. Continually fill yourself with positive thoughts– daily reading positive books, continually repeating positive affirmations. Get help from friends, doctors, counselors, a support group, and God! Self-destructive feelings can be overcome! I’ve struggled with negative and depressing thoughts and feelings since childhood. With God’s help and your determined, persistent resistance, you can push them away from your heart and mind!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
