"Rick and Morty" Co-Creator Gives Best Advice to Twitter Fan on How to Deal with Depression

I've been looking for a good reason to be happy about Twitter's character limit increase. And my reason came in a series of tweets that left behind both some solid advice on how to deal with depression AND a badly needed win for the men in TV team.

Dan Harmon, co-creator of the adult animated sci-fi show Rick and Morty, took it to Twitter to give us a lesson in compassion, empathy and wisdom after a fan reached out via Tweet in the middle of the night asking for advice on dealing with depression.

Harmon, who is no stranger to struggles and conflicting emotions himself -- comedian John Oliver once referred to him as a “human hand grenade with a predilection for pulling his own pin out” -- did not take his fan's call for advice lightly and replied in a series of four tweets that brought the Internet to tears.

Harmon's response nearly left fan Chelsea Sargent speechless -- though she did point out that his advice was "Probably better than my therapist could've said it." But Chelsea was not the only one to respond to Dan Harmon's compassionate words.

The Twitter exchange was met with grateful replies from many others whose anxieties and fears Harmon's words spoke to directly.
