When Dead Celebrities Say Things That Resonate

When Dead Celebrities Say Things that Resonate

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to come up with beautifully, eloquent words that strike a chord with fellow humans?

When Stephen Hawking died, it struck a chord with a lot of people. 

This individual struggled with a debilitating disease for over 50 years. He had fully tried to live a life amongst the struggle. 

He was our Einstein. He was the one that was able to look out at the universe and skies, and he was able to understand things that most of us would be lucky to grasp in our lifetime. 

Why Is It That Physical Diseases Triumph over Mental Ones?

Everyone wants to be understood and loved. Everyone wants to be able to understand, have control, and have direction over their lives. 

If someone were to take a look at Stephen Hawking (may he rest in peace), they would understand that he has some struggles to overcome. 

They would look at him and think, "wow, he must have some struggles with life, sex, and love". 

However, with mental ones such as anxiety, the same person may take a look at someone and think that he or she is "normal". I say normal with parentheses, because I don't believe there is such a thing as normal (everyone is unique). However, society has placed expectations on people with standards of how to act and how to feel. 

You can't look at someone who is struggling internally and say "Yep! You are struggling" 

Why does our society continue to negate the effects of the mental struggle?

Stephen Hawking's Wise Words

Hawking stated, "Black holes ain't as black as they are painted. They are not eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don't give up- there's a way out."

Hawking suffered from depression and his careful exploration of the sciences and universe gave him something to look forward to, something to hope for. 

To me, his words mean hope. There is hope that anybody can have a new beginning to be able to live the life that he or she is meant to live. 

So, what is the one thing that makes life worth living? What gives you hope? 

How Does This Relate to Anxiety?

Well, just like depression, you have to find something to live for. You need hope. 

Let us help you find your hope and where to find your new beginning. 

Make the most of the unique human that you are.
