It truly saddens me to hear about his death.
I have such huge admiration for this man. Whenever I'm watching his shows I'm always thinking how kick ass his life is, so full of adventure! He's got so much life in him, I can't reconcile that image of him with someone who will end up comitting suicide.
It got me thinking, what drove a person to resort to such action? How can someone wake up one day and just think about ending his life?
It only proves that no matter what we see on the outside, we can never really know what goes on in the minds of the people around us and in their private lives. No matter how big is the smile on that person's face or how strong a person can appear to be, it's hard to say if they maybe struggle with something.
Maybe for some, the endless cycle of whatever is going on in their life had become too tiring that they feel that the only way out is to hang oneself. And you can have one thousand friends, all the money in the world but you can still feel alone and unfulfilled. You may appear to have everything figured out but still not find that one place where you belong. And maybe for some, life has just become a series of motions that it has become too mundane to be worth anything. 😔
Whatever the case had been, the Anthony Bourdain I'll always remember is a someone who has so much hunger for life.
RIP Monsieur Bourdain, you will be missed
