It’s easy to dismiss a celebrity death. Yet the Robin Williams suicide shows that depression is not hype. It is a serious killer.
Reach out to someone.
No, that’s not corny. If you think reaching out to your fellow man is corny or gay or uncool, then you have been brainwashed by the establishment. You are a good slave who is “too cool” to help another man out.
Society wants serious, thoughtful men to become as vain and frivolous as everyone else. Divide and conquer.
You don’t have to go deep.
Men feel awkward about reaching out. “What should I say?” You don’t have to write poetry.
Ask a banal question about how their business is doing. Find out what they’ve been up to. Give them a word of encouragement Sometimes knowing that someone cares is all a man needs to hear to continue living another day.
I personally am going through my emails for the next 30 minutes. I’ll be reaching out to people I haven’t spoken to in a while.
You never know what someone is going through and you’ll never know what you’ll hear when you sincerely ask, “How have you been?”
