You've probably seen the headline, "AVICII KILLED HIMSELF" today... let me break this down
THIS ISN'T CONFIRMED. People have been reading into this statement by the family...
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions.
An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.
He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness.
He could not go on any longer.
He wanted to find peace.
Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed.
The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you, Your family
"He could not go on any longer" <- this piece has been where the media has taken suicide from.
Is it true? We have no idea.
Should we post articles about how he killed himself before we know the fact? Absolutely not.
When/ if it is confirmed is a different story. Suicide isn't something that should be taken lightly or throw at to get a headline. Give the family some time to grieve- they will tell us when they are ready.
