The suicide note, although truthful to the heart, contained various dark revelations about SelFLo’s life, family, and past. In the letter, he wrote, “I was r*ped as a child.

“[I] almost got kidnapped, fully controlling and demoralizing childhood, sh*t teenage hood and my transition to adulthood also sucked,” SeLFlo added. The YouTuber continued to confess all the traumatic experiences he’s had to endure and talked more about how difficult it was for him to socialize and make friends.
“I have difficulties making friends, socializing, maintaining self-control, having no self-worth, being around in public, talking to people, [and] I can't even talk to people online properly,” he said. SeLFlo dived deeper into his life, discussing all the challenges and attempts to escape depression and the experiences that haunted him or still did at the time.
The YouTuber said he “[couldn’t] recall any genuinely happy moments from [his] personal real life.” However, he expressed how glad he felt when his YouTube channel kicked off, grew into a community of fans, and described the journey as “probably the happiest thing that has happened to [him].”
