Jim Carrey went through those dark nights of sadness and depression and came out with a lot of knowledge. Each time he opens his mouth about any trivial issue, people have a clearer vision of that matter and their jaw drops immediately after the facts they hear. Many people would think if Jim Carrey as a person who pretends wisdom more than he actually has in him. But his words are brutally honest and come from an experience if the devil named Depression.
Most of the times Jim Carrey was seen playing a comedy role in movies and when asked he said that he tried to play them to pretend a life without concern so people who are watching them may feel the same. Carrey talks about how he created himself, and we the whole world are going to end in the same place after death. Carrey gave life an illusionary image by mentioning that people are not people, they are ideas. The difference between an African and an American is only about the ideas. Carrey says he never planned anything and similarly we don’t do anything, everything happens.
Carrey has suffered depression for a long time. What he learned is that people for half of their lives try and earn respect, money to fill in the so that later they can feel contained and enjoy those achievements. Also, it feels good to get dressed in cool clothes and feels good to have a nice car but that does not create happiness. The concept of happiness is completely different. Depression and sadness are also not the same. Depression is a feeling where the will to live, to go on collapses all of a sudden and nothing makes you happy.
For Carrey depression is ‘deep rest’. This concept may differ from person to person, but what came after depression to Carrey he calls that his ‘Avatar’ which he is now enjoying. He also speaks about the self-center ego of people. Explaining with an example of ‘house’ and ‘my house’ he says that the ‘my’ creates a lot of issues and often removing that solves problems easily. Jim Carrey’s take on life may often sound a little too direct but these are some important truths which came out of a harsh experience and each word is true.
