These two people were both iconic. Talented, creative, ambitious, successful, groundbreaking, beautiful people who had a life many dream of. And maybe that’s why so many people are as startled as they are. These are people they wanted to be. How could these two be in this position? Didn’t they have it all?
So if you think, “When I get that job, I’ll finally feel at ease” or “When I graduate I’ll calm down” or “When I’m married and have a family I’ll feel better” let these two show us that circumstance and mental health don’t always correlate. If you are struggling at any point- whether life is going well or miserably- it is most important to seek help.
