I’m doing this throwback a day early to test to see if my notifications are working. Please let me kow if you saw this post in your WordPress Reader, via email, or both. Thank you!!
Today’s Throwback is from Sep 2, 2014.
If there’s one thing we learned from the death of Robin Williams, it’s that celebrities have an impact on the publics perception of mental illness. It made people around the world stop for a second and think, It could happen to anybody. There are some quotes from celebrites who have been diagnosed with mental illness, such as Catherine Zeta Jones. And there are quotes from mental health advocates, such as Glenn Close. Here, I present to you, a small sampling of celebrity quotes on mental illness:
26 comments on Celebrity Quotes On Mental Illness – Throwback Wednesday
Hey friend – I only saw this post come through my email, not my WordPress Reader! :000000 Xo (Great photos and quotes, by the way….)
AAARGH!!! It went to my Facebook page too. I’ll see if I get a couple more responses and contact tech support again if I have to.
p.s. Thery’re all terrific quotes, but I especially love the “C & C” quotes – Catherine Zeta-Jones and Carrie Fisher. I pre-ordered Carrie’s new book “The Princess Diarist” months ago. It has been a #1 bestseller on Amazon for a long time, which amazes me. I wish CZJ would write a memoir too…it would be a huge hit.
I love Carrie Fisher’s quote. I adore her. My other favorite is Jane Pauley’s.
Hi Bradley. I received your email notification but you still are not showing up in the WordPress reader today. I like your post. Jane Pauley is my favorite. I don’t feel I am being authentic if I have to hide part of myself. But people are uncomfortable with or even afraid of what they don’t understand.
Thank you for letting me know about the notifications problem. Hopefully I’ll get it fixed some day.
Same – email but not on reader.
i would reblog this, but there’s no button for that 🙁
Yeah, that’s one of the negatives of self hosting, it’s not possible to reblog. Some people copy and past a sentence or a paragraph and then provide a link, but I know it’s not the same as reblogging.
That Carrie Fisher quote is stellar, but I love Glenn Close’s, too.
I’ve written couple of posts based on that Carrie Fisher quote. It’s so true
It really is.
I relate to several of the feeling mentioned by celebrities. By reading the comments, the ones most offensive to me are the most popular to others. To each his own. I have a friend who is struggling to not kill herself, the smart ass comments hit me harder because my father committed suicide, I’ve made many attempts and now a dear friend may be dead for all I know today. I’m a bit raw.
I did get you post, didn’t check reader since you come to my email. I am still not receiving comments made to me. I have a nice post and CS request to get off ass and fix the problem. My comments quit coming a couple of weeks before the whole thing fell apart by unfolding all my followers, just kept going down from there.
Take care. I’m sure people will benefit from your post.
When I submit my comment it says your site is not secure
Oh my, that’s a new one. Let me know if it happens again on my next post, which will be Monday
It happened on the second comment I sent today. Let you know about tomorrow.
Thank you. I hope you get the problem resolved. It took awhile for mine to be taken care of.
Did you have to do it all yourself or did WP step up?
I self host so it was never a WordPress problem. It was due to complications from one of the vendors applications. They worked hard on it and I’m very happy it was finally fixed.
Enjoyed these, Bradley, so spot on. (I saw this in my email, I don’t often use the reader.)
Thank you, Erika. I’m glad you were able to connect with the quotes.
I was looking at the below page on your website that mentioned a mental health topic, and I’m curious if you’d be open to me writing some unique content for your audience on the subject. It was this page of your site that I was looking at:
When you have time, please let me know what you think. I’ve been writing about various topics for some time now, and would love the opportunity to contribute unique content to your site. I can write an article or two. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
