Zelda Williams Writes On Grief After Father Robin's Death | Zelda

Zelda Williams, who once deleted all her social media accounts following the death of her father Robin Williams, has taken to her reactivated Instagram account to speak on her grief and depression.  Robin Williams' death affected many people, including those of us who never had opportunity to meet him, and prompted a fuller discussion on mental health issues.

Following the anniversary of his death, Zelda has opened up about her own feelings of depression and the importance of finding hope. She wrote:

Avoiding fear, sadness or anger is not the same thing as being happy. I live my sadness every day, but I don't resent it anymore.

She acknowledges that sadness is in her life, but its presence doesn't stop her from appreciating the beauty of nature.  She continues:

And for those suffering from depression, I know how dark and endless that tunnel can feel, but if happiness seems impossible to find, please hold on to the possibility of hope, faint though it may be.

Her beautiful and heartfelt words may bring hope to others or lead them to seek help for their depression.  Read her full post below.

 

Moonrise on the lake ? I spent this night shivering and laughing under a clear, cold sky full of stars with people I love just to witness something beautiful. We mooned the moon and laughed ourselves hoarse, and I'm so incredibly grateful for every silly second. I came to a realization this year that I feel compelled to share here, for whomsoever may need it: Avoiding fear, sadness or anger is not the same thing as being happy. I live my sadness every day, but I don't resent it anymore. Instead, I do it now so that the wonderful moments of joy I do find are not in order to forget, but to inhabit and enjoy for their own sake. It's not easy. In fact, I'd say it takes much more effort to consciously do than it does to just stay sad, but with all my heart, I cannot tell you how worth it it is. And for those suffering from depression, I know how dark and endless that tunnel can feel, but if happiness seems impossible to find, please hold on to the possibility of hope, faint though it may be. Because I promise you, there're enough nights under the same yellow moon for all of us to share, no matter how or when you find your way there.
