RIP brother Derek 😪@derek.barbas #fucksuicide #fuckdepression #fuckanxiety
The world lost another great human to suicide.
Depression is indescribable untill YOU have to go through/survive it. It shreds your soul and makes you feel like the world is not a place you want to be. This is a reality check for me. An uncomfortably close exposure to how immense and easily effected we all can be. Not only by witnessing tragedies like this, but dealing with the demons of depression. I know im not alone when i share this. I know there are many of you suffering, maybe not often, maybe everyday. I personally wrestle with it, and i want to urge you to seek help, talk to someone, you can even call ME if you need someone to relate to! Seriously! Anytime! .
Derek was a very kind and loving person, his calm energy and true sincerity was a rare trait in this day and age. He was a warrior of the ocean and should have never died by his own hand. This is fucking crazy, im numb with emotion and frustration. He was my friend, a brother of the ocean. I met him less than a year ago and from the first day he was just an easy going great guy that had an energy that was very humble and genuine. He always had a laugh and a smile to share, along with an espresso from @coffee_coffee_leucadia and a bar of wax from @surfysurfy where he worked nearly simultaneously... and did I mention he was a stud! Yeah, he chased big waves all over the world in his spare time... stud. We love you and we miss derek! 😎 #suicideprevention
