    I honestly don't think he meant to take his life when he said when you're playing with the feeling of dying , It makes me feel he was trying to find something to connect to make him feel alive , I pray for his soul 🌞

    Guys i understand how this looks to you and how you are all against his management because of what happened,but as an artist myself i can tell you that once you get as big as Avicii ITS NOT that easy to just quit everything in one day..There are contracts,there is press,there are events scheduled like a year before,people who bought tickets,organizers who put a lot of money on this,a lot of promotion,there was a whole team working with Avicii for all these..there are many things you dont understand...You just canot cancel everything in 1 day when you are as big as avicii was..Yes we all feel like why you cant,why people dont understand that he wanted rest from all these and why he just cannot quit in 1 day? but Once you get booked for all those big events and festivals,once you sign those contracts ,once the organizers pay all these money for promotion and everything,once you become that big..you cant just go and cancel everything in 1 day..
    I mean we all love Avicii of course and i am very sad for what happened to this amazing and very talented person,but his management did the best they could to cancel as much shows,interviews as possible as you can see in the video, so avicii can slowly get out of this....and "slowly getting out of this" was the only way out unfortunately when you are as big and famous as Avicii was.

    Truly saddened by the way his management was pushing him, all they cared about was the money Tim (Avicii) was making them, very disgusted by them. He was ILL if they let him recover, he would be with us today. I can see why he took his life, too much pressure for a Young ill person.
    To his family sorry for your loss. To his managers 🖕🖕🖕

    I haven't watched the documentary, but did they say anything about autism?
    I watched a docu about him while at the peak of his career and he obviously showed some autistic patterns.

    Really sad the people Tim had around him didn't give care about his health and well-being. Tragic.

    It's our fault he died. He wanted to quit but we pushed him to keep going. He did his shows even though he hates them, but he hid those feelings while he performed. Not many people will do that. He was one of few kind souls in this generation. We need more people like him, not the spoiled entitled people we are now who only care about social media and status.

    I've been doing anxiety for 2 years now and I swear to god, watching this is depressing me. People that don't have anxiety will NEVER be able to relate at all. They should of never threat him like that. His face at 2:40 just says how bad he felt and how frustated he was. RIP AVICII, never be forgotten

    Robin Williams, Chester bennington, and now Tim. See a pattern? It's after the fact, but if you see someone crying for help like this, take it seriously. Attempting suicide is often just a last ditch attempt to get the attention they need to get the help they need. That does not mean they won't go through with it. Listen and understand, but don't sympathize. You can help them by making them realize that they are the only person who can really help themselves. Tell them "Don't wait for someone to come and save you, because the only person who can really help you is you. No one else will understand the thoughts going through your head as much as yourself. Alan Watts helped me get my head in order, I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for that man. Show them his talks. Google is an an invaluable resource for finding answers to what's causing your pain. I speak directly from experience, this is what helped me, and I hope it helps someone.

    Didn't know much about EDM or dj but when I heard "you make me" song on a football World Cup advertisement I became fan and started to search more about Avicii ,EDM and dj and came to know Martin Garrix and Hardwell and now m a big fan of EDM and dj ...so I always felt like he guided me to this genres of music ..I was so so sad to hear the news of his death. He was so young .I will always have a soft corner for him.

    There are many different people who die just because they were so sick like Avicii, and they are Michael Jackson, Bruce Lee, and the actors of Robbie Rotten from LazyTown and Luke from Jessie. There are also some people who died by accidents like Kong the dog from Logan Paul Vlogs who was eaten by a coyote, which is so sad because he was so cute, and one of the Linkin Park singers who killed himself because he hung himself and he was sad, which would be really stupid for someone to do that.
