Rest In Peace, Reckful.
What a terrible tragedy. You can tell he meant so much to so many people.
If you are having suicidal thoughts, then please speak to a trusted friend/family member or a professional.
I can’t stress this enough: life gets better. I promise.

This is one of my fav clips of Reckful. He started talking to a psychiatrist on stream to help other depressed viewers, and to motivate them to seek actual help irl.
They were talking about finding purpose and meaning in life, cause Byron has been suicidal for years. pic.twitter.com/0oQ7rvymWQ
