Why would anyone with success suffer from any kind of mental issues? Aren't people with money invincible?

All the aforementioned shit, plus he was a booze hound and did massive amounts of coke for a long time which fries the fuck out of your brain.

He was a spoiled ungrateful cunt. There are two types of depression, one stems from having a shit life (and can be fixed by someone helping you to get a good life), and another stems from being an overprivileged piece of shit bored due to having it too good.

robin williams was rich and whatever life insurance he had was likely just to pay off any remaining debts to prevent being cash-poor but asset rich for a brief time.

Actual clinical depression is fucked up. Your brain doesn't produce or receive enough of the neurochemicals that allow you to feel fulfilment or happiness. It sounds retarded but that's how the human brain works. You could be a billionaire with supermodels fighting to the death over who gets to have your dick next, but if you have clinical depression you'll still get no joy from it.

Also, he was just diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. That shit traps your brain in a decaying body over time and there's no cure. I'm not clinically depressed, but if I was diagnosed with that I'd take myself out too. Avoid the suffering and avoid putting the people you love through that, however harsh suicide is on those left behind.

But really, you guys do realise the existance of clinical depression isn't up for debate right? You can use an MRI to see the difference between a normal person and a person dealing with depression.

That is exactly why depression happens shithead, externalizing the causes of your problems. You and you alone can fix yourself.

Robin Williams was "depressed" because he was a lazy fatass who probably got all of his happiness from being worshiped by audiences. When his fame dropped off he offed himself. If he took care of his physical state and got validation from within rather than without he would still be with us.

Robin Williams’ widow has said that his medical afflictions would have claimed his life within three “hard years” and that she does not blame him for his suicide. She said he was suffering from a rare form of dementia that my have caused him to suffer from a lack of reason.

Fifteen months after the actor took his life, Susan Schneider Williams told US media she laid the blame for her husband taking his life not on depression but on diffuseLewy body dementia.

In interviews with People magazine and with ABC News, she said: "It was not depression that killed Robin. Depression was one of let’s call it 50 symptoms and it was a small one.”

She added: “This was a very unique case and I pray to God that it will shed some light on Lewy bodies for the millions of people and their loved ones who are suffering with it. Because we didn’t know. He didn’t know.”

Nope, lifting or whatever isn't important but it's proven time and time again the reason for this depression bullshit is that humans in ancient times never sat on their ass 24/7 and moped.

Meaning the chemistry of their brain is different. Perhaps shitty attitude drastically alters your brain, but it is equally possible it is something that happens biologically that is out of our control.

Maybe that was YOUR problem, but not necessarily everybody else's. Drugs and biological defects may permenantly damage the brain. Some people may suffer a different disorder like OCD or APD and it makes forming close bonds with people extremely difficult.

This right here is exactly what's causing your "hormonal imbalance." You're pinning all your problems on an external source and then building outward from that conclusion. "Depressed" people do it all the time--"It's the government's fault" "It's the Jews' fault" "It's racism's fault" "It's my mean old dad's fault." NO. The only way to be happy is internally based validation. "It's my fault." This breaks "clinical depression" instantly

Looks like you dumbfucks don't understand the concept of depression. Being severely depressed is the psychological equivalent to having cancer.
It is not the psychological equivalent to having the common cold.

You don't just "get better."

You cannot "cheer yourself up" out of severe depression.

Being successful doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
Being loved doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
Having a loving family doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
Having work the person loves doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
Having a great education doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
Being able to make other people laugh doesn't protect a person from getting cancer or being severely depressed.
We do not say to people who have cancer:

"Snap out of it!"
Get out of bed and I'll bet you'll start feeling better!
Why do you have to take medication for that?
Why aren't you better by now?
Are you sure it isn't all in your head?
You can't be feeling bad! Just look at how much you have to be happy and healthy about!

But every person who has had severe depression has heard one or more of these stupid shits.

If you aren't depressed, you're delusional.

>All wanting comes from need, therefore from lack, therefore from suffering.

Anything and everything you desire, you desire it because you lack it. Because you lack it, you suffer; you hurt because of that lack, and until it is fulfilled, you will continue to hurt.

But fulfilling it will not erase the hurt you have already endured. Therefore, you cannot get ahead -- you cannot even break even. You will always experience greater total suffering than pleasure. There is no other way.

The only way out is self-denial. By denying desire, you opt out of what causes you to hurt. By embracing the pain you feel now, you save yourself from more.

Suicide is the answer of the self-deluded man who has bought into the great lie that humans are meant to be happy. Because he is not happy nor sees a way to be happy, he seeks to end his suffering -- but he would gladly live if he could find a way out other than death.

In this way, suicide is, paradoxically, an affirmation of the will to live, which is the source of all human suffering. If someone decides to make the informed decision to end their own life, we have no right to interfere, but most who choose to do so are not making an informed decision: they are delusional. It is only in the acceptance and embrace of one's own suffering that one might find peace from it, and only in compassionate actions towards others that one might reduce it.

Explain what the fuck was wrong with Nietzche or Newton or any of the numerous other people in history that obviously battled with depression. They were around before modern psychology, the term depression, or depression medication ever started.

You don't know what you are talking about. Why do so many men who never get diagnosed commit suicide? People like you make it out to be a weakness and immasculating when in many cases they'd be better off taking the fucking pills and having a normal life. They work for some people.

And yea homosexuality is another biologically influenced nuance of the human mind. The only reason it isn't classified as a "disorder" is because it isn't particularly maladaptive. Sure it lessens the likelihood of reproduction, but productivity and happiness aren't as drastically affected as say depression.

You could've just said if you're likely to experience more sadness than happiness in your life then you should probably kill yourself, but you knew you'd sound stupid so you resorted to mental gymnastics instead.

That happened in 1831.

Arguably. But even then, they are brain problems that caused Depression. Many people with depression have accompanying disorders, and there are many others in history that don't. doesn't disprove my point.
>>64740983
Nietzche's ego problems and outlook on life came from his attempts to cure his depression using what was essentially self-therapy and I don't think he ever succeeded, he just fell further into delusion. His works help many people but others still need medication.

>You could've just said if you're likely to experience more sadness than happiness in your life then you should probably kill yourself

No.

Everyone will experience more sadness than happiness in their life. That's not probability, that's cold hard fact. Anyone who thinks otherwise is only fooling themselves.

Anyone who understands this understands that life is inherently suffering, without escape, so long as one desires anything.

The suicidal man wishes to escape from suffering, but often does not understand that the source of all suffering is desire.

Only the life of the ascetic affords an escape. Only in denying desire can one find peace from suffering, as fulfilling every desire begets yet another desire.
>>
>>64741215
>>Everyone will experience more sadness than happiness in their life.
Then obviously everyone should kill themselves.

Too bad that's not true, a person who has a good life won't experience more sadness than happiness. I would even say that as many as 10-20% of people will experience more happiness than sadness.

And the only reason they will is because they're living off the sadness of the other 80-90%.
>>
>>64741268

Even the top 10-20% experience more suffering than happiness. The curve has merely been flattened, not heightened.

But you are missing the point: all wanting comes from need, therefore from lack. You want something because you need it because you do not have it. Even if you do come to have it, there is a period when you did not: in that time, you felt the pain of its absence, and nothing can erase that.

Once it came to pass, it filled the hole you had before, but any effort to fill it beyond its capacity is entirely wasted -- it overflows into nothing.
>>
>>64741268
Not him, but I don't think you understand the core of what Schopenhauer was saying.

How I understand it is, suicide doesn't fix anything, you only get one life so you might as well live it, even though it's shitty. If you play good ass videogames and watch patrician films, and try not to want anything (women, cars, relief from suffering) you'll have an easier time waiting to die. Don't necessarily mask the sadness, but come to terms with it.

Suicide by its nature is a mirage of relief from pain. But pain is natural. Lying to yourself that you're "happy" is also an illusion. Apparently lots of people are delusional.

He also shits on women which is pretty funny.
>>
>>64741413
Yeah, so basically snuff out all desire and just sit in a cave until you die, or snuff yourself out, great idea. Meanwhile everyone who's at the top of the game is doing a billion times better than you ever have or ever will and you don't even have the guts to start playing.

Ok, tell me how extinguishing all desire is not the exact same thing as a lobotomy or suicide? How is this Schopenhauer's hypothetical any different from a coma patient? It's all fucking bullshit, same goes for Buddhism.

Let's just pretend that we don't want anything because if we acknowledged that we do, we'd have to kill ourselves, oh yeah let's also not advocate suicide because we're too weak for that shit.

I don't think you understand Buddhism. Buddhists recognize that this life is pointless that's why they sit around and throat sing all day while they wait to die and pass on.

"better than you" being what? Money? Women? He explained that wanting those is what causes suffering and it will never be enough and people who think it is are delusional.
>>64741515
He really liked going to plays and seeing live music. and books. You can't enjoy any of those if you're dead. Basically endless indulgence.

A better argument against him would be: "why doesn't everybody become a drug addict? That way they can keep experiencing euphoria without worrying about want." at least that's what I was asking after reading it. I guess the answer to that is that it isn't as "fulfilling" as coming to terms with existence. Understanding what it means to be human and all that. Nietzsche expanded on this with the ubermensch thing. In fact most philosophers argue that the pursuit of truth is the point if life.

Sorry if I'm rambling, the original guy posting pics of him seemed much more knowledgeable.

when he and his wife found out he has a terminal illness - parkinson's - his wife said that she's gonna put him in a home and she's gonna have complete control his finances. she also banned his children from seeing him, because she sees them as competition.

so robin decided he'd rather die than let that happen.

>>64742490
his suicide, he did it for his kids. because then at least his kids have a fighting chance of winning his inheritance. unlike the other scenario, where he slowly dies in a home and she's controlling his wealth and the kids as their legal guardian.

Robin Williams’ widow has said that his medical afflictions would have claimed his life within three “hard years” and that she does not blame him for his suicide. She said he was suffering from a rare form of dementia that my have caused him to suffer from a lack of reason.

Fifteen months after the actor took his life, Susan Schneider Williams told US media she laid the blame for her husband taking his life not on depression but on diffuseLewy body dementia.

In interviews with People magazine and with ABC News, she said: "It was not depression that killed Robin. Depression was one of let’s call it 50 symptoms and it was a small one.”

Yeah, and what does that mean? He was a fucking prince. Of course a rich faggot who has everything in the world can preach bullshit to people who don't have anything. It's just a tool to preserve the social order and explain inequality to people at the bottom.

"See, I sacrificed everything to still have a life that's a thousand times better than yours also now I'm noble and spiritual and you have to suck my cock and kiss my toes"

>He really liked going to plays and seeing live music. and books. You can't enjoy any of those if you're dead. Basically endless indulgence.
So basically shit for poorfags? And protip: he had money, and he had a very good position in society, look his biography up, it's not like he lived in a gutter and was shunned by everyone.

I Understand depressionis just a chemical imbalance in the brain and sometimes no matter how good your life is you can still be dpressed, but was he really so far gone that not even strong medication could work? I've been depressed for, just a fucking cloud of sadness with no particular origin and no obvious problem to fix, it's awful. But medication worked great. Did he just not get help or what the fuck

I don't think its necessarilly any of these things. I think it was like Marilyn Monroe. When you're a comedian, you become the 'tell me a joke' guy. Like the clownfish in finding nemo.

I remember watching the TV show he was doing right before he died and telling my dad that he was going to commit suicide. I just saw the look in his eyes, the jokes were just so totally shit, and his name was all over the show, so it was like, what a fucking disappointment.

The hardest part of a comedian, without wit or humor. Is that it feels like losing an identity. Especially since he played the 'role' more than he got to actually act like himself. To the point he probably believed that was him.

So when 'him' was dead, it only makes sense that the real body follow suite.

>>64737809
imagine living your whole life normally, getting rich and famous, suffering from depression, dying, and then some overpaid mortician says you had giga autism your whole life? It's the equivalent of saying hitler was a bad guy even though he had good intentions for his people. I hate the fact that humans can label each other even far after death. It makes succeeding pointless.

It's logical to be depressed.

This world is pretty shitty to be honest
>>
Real depression just makes you depressed regardless.

The fucked up thing is that being so loved and successful probably made him even more depressed. A brain suffering from clinical depression would warp it into something akin to: "I don't deserve all this wealth and success, I'm so useless. I wish people would treat me like the useless sack of shit that I am. I can't live up to their expectations at all."

Just like people suffering from whatever mental illness causes one to be transgender, it alters your perception of reality.

Yes and no. There's different types of depressions. There IS one that is a mental disease and not dependant on the environement.

Yeah that makes sense, it's really amazing how much the brain can change in response to repeated stimuli.

>but it is equally possible it is something that happens biologically that is out of our control.
What in the hell are you talking about, the brain just randomly rewires itself into a depressed one for no reason?

Based on this response you appear to have been lobotomized yourself.

Depression is not a disease. You do not "catch" depression. Depression is as much a disease as an idea.
