We admire others, covet what we perceive them to have as though it was taken from us, we fool ourselves into thinking others have “it” easy and we do not . . . we are blind to the reality that is THEY view us the same way. Sometimes all that talent, money, bright lights, and “glamour” becomes a corpse on the floor with the needle still in the arm and 50 bags of heroin nearby waiting to mask reality.
RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman and so many others who’ve lost the battle the same way. Lord save us from ourselves and in our weakness fill us with your strength.
