Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.
To be honest the way I feel right now, I wouldn’t care less if no one thought about me even for a second after I am gone. I couldn’t care less about leaving a legacy. I am done with life and expecting good things from it. I expect the worst. I have given up.
Nothing I planned with the best of intentions has ever worked out. I have been unlucky in most of the things that I set out to do. I have the worst luck possible and in the end I always end up feeling guilty, lost, lonely and with a terrible sense of regret. I do not want that anymore and I wouldn’t want that to be my legacy either. So why both with one.
So after I’m gone it should be like I never even existed. Gone out in fumes of my funeral pyre and never to be remembered. Done, dusted and dead.
