Who would miss you if you were gone?

(30 Second Read)

Isn't that what it boils down to?

I mean, at the basic level, I'm a son, a brother, a boyfriend, and a friend. I hope to be a good one. 

The impact you have on other lives is just one way to measure a life.

There are countless ways. You can count the number of dollars you accumulate in your bank account. Or how many patents you have. Or buildings you built. 

Or the number of people at your funeral.

But just like how the best things in life aren't free, it's the things you can't count that matter most. I just hope a lot of people miss me when I'm gone.

Is that selfish? 

It’s good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters in the end.
— Ursula K. Le Guin
