When you die, what do you want to be remembered as?

I think most people live day to day very passively, but if you were to think about what you wish to be remembered as, you realize the life you should really be living. What do you want to be remembered as?

I want to be remembered as someone who tested himself to find out who I could really be, what I could really accomplish, and didn't accept fear or doubt as truth. And as someone who had the same consideration for others, regardless if they worshiped the same god I worshiped, or looked the same way I looked.

  • I want to be remembered as someone who never lost sight of myself. Never bowed down to peer pressure or society telling me what I should and should not be. I want to be remembered as being bold, open, honest, and a little cruel but ultimately very fair. For never denying my own feelings and for standing up for what I believe is right.

  • I want to be remembered for exactly what I am. I am a loyal person with a kind heart. I defend those I love, and I worked for everything I ever had. I tried my best in everything I've done, even if I did not succeed. I've messed up, but I made amends. I could die knowing I have been true to myself and to those around me. I've loved someone more than I could understand, and for that I know I opened up my heart entirely without fear. I don't want to be remembered as some saint, or something better than I am. I am flawed, but I hope my ability to recognize these flaws and attempt to overcome them are the reason that people loved me.

  • Passive does not always equare to inactivity. Passivity is often devoid of ego. I live a relatively 'passive' life from the outset intentionally so as to not fall victim to non-truths such as the quest for fame, excessive material possessions and external beauty.

    I want to be remembered for being compassionate, humble and loving. I want to be remembered as someone who was/is honest and kind and gentle. There's a lot of strength in passivity and vulnerabilty - it's not all about pursuits and accomplishments...

    Sometimes, the greatest feat one can master in a lifetime, is to simply be grateful - and honest.
