When an artist's work resonates with you, it's only natural to look up to that artist and want to communicate with them. Maybe for inspiration, maybe for answers, or maybe it's because you just want someone to talk to that connects with you on a specific level.
For Twitter user @chojuroh, she reached out to Rick & Morty creator Dan Harmon on how to best deal with depression, an emotion that permeates through and is addressed in a lot of the show's writing.
And Harmon actually gave the fan a response that was well thought-out, in-depth, and, not to sound hokey, pretty hopeful.
@Chojuroh was floored by his response. One, because she couldn't believe that one of her favorite artists ever was actually talking to her on Twitter and two, well, because his advice was really good.
He also ended up helping a lot of his other followers in the process.
Fans appreciated his honesty and candidness in telling the fan to acknowledge their depression head on.
Even if it did get some fans a little emotional.
Pretty soon it was all a love-cry fest of shared Twitter emotions.
It's important to know that if you, or anyone you know, are suffering from depression, there are places you can contact for assistance.
What strikes me most about Harmon's tweet storm is his point to tell people to actively deal with their depression with output. Do something about it. Be active with it.
It made me think of Patton Oswalt's touching Facebook post on the soul-crushing effects of grief and its ultimate uselessness.
So as difficult as it may be, when you're depressed or suffering from some pretty awful feelings, it seems like the healthiest thing to do, like Harmon says, is to do something about it. Seriously, if you're reading this and think you may be depressed, get help. You're worth it!
