Mentally ill people do not gain freedom by committing suicide.
Robin Williams’s death is an unspeakable tragedy and a terrible waste of a tremendous talent.
DO NOT ROMANTICIZE HIS DEATH BY SAYING “GENIE, YOU’RE FREE.”
It’s a terrible insult to anyone who has ever dealt with mental illness and disrespectful to who Robin Williams was as a person.
I saw someone say this on Facebook and literally found it so triggering I burst into tears.
Committing suicide does not mean you win. It means you lose to your illness ya’ll. As someone with bi polar disorder I can vouch. When I heard he was mentally ill I clenched my fist and got mad. The first thing I said through gritted teeth was, “It got him.”
