    I am so sorry about Ronnie! He was a huge part of this community and he will be missed dearly. I fight my demons every day, and channels like this one help so much that I can't even express it. I hope you and everyone involved will help each other through this. Remember, you all will get to see him again someday, and it will all be okay someday, maybe not today, or tomorrow, or next week, but someday. We are all with you all the way and we will remember Ronnie until we see him again. Rest in peace, Ronnie. You made a huge impact on all who watched this channel.

    Fake friends are for a while. Real friends are for life. A fake friend will not care about you at all and will choose other people like the so called "cool people" that are just bad people over nice people like you and while always tell you to leave. A real friend values your friendship and would invite you in for a lot of things, and would act like your somebody they want to keep in their heart rather than remove you from even things you would do together. The types of people that wouldn't even say hi to you even though they know you really well and would do something like Scream LEAVE at you when you join them and would even consider removing you or PAYING you to leave. If you find any Fake Friends then just remove them from your social life as soon as possible. Keeping these types of friends can lead to Social Suicide. if you are a Real friend or have a real friend then act like a real friend to all of your friends that value you too. If you are a Fake friend to ANYBODY, You need to stop NOW. If you stay the way you are you will cause humans to die faster than we are supposed to. The amount of people that have committed social suicide is a number BEYOND genocide. We need to do what we can to prevent this. If you have a Fake friend that makes you feel alone, just know that you're not alone. You have all of your family and all of us Supporting you... I hope that this has helped all of you. If you are close to committing suicide then i can help you. I can show you why committing suicide is the WRONG thing to do... I am here to help. So let me help you... Please.

    Markiplier experienced the same exact thing. I am sorry I am late. But if I was here earlier. You would hear my voice Matthew. But I hope the best. I hope you got through this easily. It is not easy losing someone close to you. I have experienced the same thing. But I hope you hear my voice right here right now. And I hope the best for the rest of the team.

    Hearing that one of your best friends has lost the battle to mental illness, having your first baby the next day, having your own personal struggles, you've well past earned you're right to a break. As a theorist, I know how much you've helped millions of people, and now it's time for us to help you. Please remember how much we all love you, and know that all of us and many more are devastated by this, and would be equally devastated if you or anyone on the team lost your battle. In the aftermath of all of this please, please, remember how much the Theorists love and support you. I'm sure that after all of this that has happened, more people will reach out, get help and defeat their demons. Everyone should help by being there to talk to, helping people through the dark times, and even if you are in need of help, call the number because they will listen, reach out to family, friends, or a therapist. Thank you for putting this beautiful memorial out, we love you!

    Suicide is bad and never should be considered.
    Even though many people still commit suicide every day,you know they are probably in a better place.(if they were a good person in their life)

    I didn’t think I could watch the whole video, but I’m glad I did.
    I could feel the impact of Ronnie on the channel, years ago when it was just getting started. It takes a special person to be both the willing butt of a joke and defiant in the face of that manufactured humiliation in service of a joke: both the straight man and the protagonist.
    I think, however, that the impact of his suicide has affected you deeper than you may be conscious of, MatPat.
    You were constantly looking away from the camera while you were talking, for many sections of the video. In terms of body language, that usually indicates not revealing everything that you are actually thinking.
    However, your constant blinking reveals that the reason for not telling us everything on your mind is for personal reasons, or for altruistic reasons; blinking is a subconscious signal of non-aggression (cats do it too), indicating that choosing not to share everything was done with no malicious intent or ulterior motive. Maybe you’re protecting some vulnerable people who were deeply affected by Ronnie’s death, or are privy to information that is not appropriate to share in the context of a TheXvid video.
    Find some way to get everything off your chest, whatever else remains. Whatever is still locked up within you, find a way to let it out, even if it’s negative or painful. Dragging the nasty stuff into the light will help you categorize and understand it, and this is not something that can be done alone. That way, it doesn’t fester and rot.
    Towards the end of the video, when you stopped looking away and stopped blinking, your genuine feelings and the message you imparted was loud and clear. Keep strong, and get someone to help you work through all of this. It will take some time to find the right person addressing the right pieces yet to be shared, but the more you carry that weight the more you impact your metaphorical spine, thus the weaker you become over time.
    Set the baggage down, in whatever way allows you to let it go for good. You will need help. Good luck, stay safe.

  • Short Combo Video Production

    I'm pretty late to this honestly. This gave some insight to the early days of GT and its pretty innings. I thought I'd get that off my chest first. I recently went through my own bout of depression. around this time this video was posted I had run away from my wife and my son. I remember it so well though it doesn't take much to push someone over the edge no matter what line of work they are in I was convulsively shaking everyday because I felt like my problems didn't matter. It wasn't until my boss came to me and talked to me about my problems and I am going to be honest here, I was simply terrified I was going to lose my job over my condition.
    We talked every day for weeks, he even let me leave early if I felt like I shouldn't be there. He told me a few times that he was genuinely scared of what was going on with me. I remember feeling like I didn't want to wake up anymore. Going through that just recently and stumbling upon this video really hits close to home because... I know the feeling, the feeling like no one is listening that no one understands. Before I broke down, I had armed myself with the knowledge of existentialism feeling so mundane everyday like I wasn't accomplishing anything but that was on top of my own personal problems in my home life. Matt isn't wrong, there are days when your body physically hurts because of how emotionally drained you are and you don't even understand the point of lifting your head off of your pillow(if you were able to fall asleep).
    I really don't mean to sound self centered referring to myself, during my battle I wanted to know how many other people were going through the same fight. I've read many stories stemming from many different triggers. I didn't know Ronnie, I hardly remember his contributions with your cross videos with Goomba and him. I was lucky that I had people to finally turn to, they didn't feel like they were helping but they did help me a lot. Matt I thank you for getting this message out there. I have read in a lot of comments that you made this video and it was monetized and you're a bad person for that etcetera. I don't believe that's the case, to see that such an internet personality like yourself has personal experience with someone who had severe depression really speaks volumes. it send a message to people who are indeed going through the same problems.
    You are not alone, if you are fighting against the monster we all call depression remember that you are not fighting alone, talk to someone, anyone. You might find a guiding hand in the most minuscule of places. That little bit of an ear that will listen and will try their best to understand may go a lot further than you think.
    Rest in peace Ronnie, may you have many side quests in the afterlife.

    I relate to him... i too was suicidal until now even though I’ve accomplished a lot my past still haunts me to the point that i should have done this and that, but i just cover it up because in front of everyone Im a comedic, active, talented and a smart person i too know the pain of being out of myself losing control to the point that i too almost lose the battle but Im still fighting thinking that i have a lot of people who cared i still got a lot to accomplish even though Im just a teen i already had a lot that i have learned from my past. Im sorry for your loss we will miss him i hope that i don’t come to the point that i will end my life because i got a lot of close calls, hopes and prayers...

    For anybody who is considering suicide...
    Suicide isn’t ending the pain,
    It’s passing it down to somebody else

    • MastaGambit
      MastaGambit 12 hours ago

      Be very careful how you phrase that. Some victims of parental abuse (specifically), if they were told that ending it is just passing your pain to someone else, would feel it justified to metaphorically pass it down to their abuser(s), like a sort of "ultimate punishment".

The few people who supported me are the reason why I hanged on during all these years and why i am still here to talk about it. Because of them, i started to be actually happy in my life, so i can tell you that he needs you, he needs you to know he is loved, and that someone care about him. Actually, helping you and your friend help me to feel better, so you thank you :') I'm crying of joy now so really thank you :') 💗

    I feel like this was a fantastic memorial video- learned a bunch of things I had no idea about (the reason why Game Theory became The Game Theorists way back when, etc.) and it really shined a light on someone I didn't even know had a hand on the channel. The work that Ronnie did... He made your videos look really flippin' good. It hurts to hear about this, but all I can do is hope that he's enjoying the afterlife and that you all will pull through this.
