Do you ever feel afraid you will grow up alone and forgotten?

We cannot all be pivotal to the development of the world but we can all be pivotal to the development of another person. Yet some of us will not be. Does it bother you if that is your fate?

  • What Im known for only matters while I'm alive. Once I'm dead either I don't exist and thus can't care about if I'm remembered or if there is some sort of afterlife I'd like to think I'd have better things to be preoccupied with than how/if I'm remembered.

    Realistically most people will be forgotten eventually, even those written in the history books.

  • It used to bother me. But when I really thought about it, I really enjoy being alone, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. If being alone makes me happy and allows me to have a fulfilling life, then why should I fear ending up alone? Because it's the norm to end up with someone?

  • At times I do. But then I open my eyes and realize I have people that care about me. Namely my little brother, I'm keeping in mind that my parents won't be around forever. And when they pass on and my brother has a life of his own - maybe then I'll be alone lol. If things don't change.

  • While I'll admit I do need to socialize more, I don't have this fear. And not to sound self absorbed, but I do generally love my own company.

  • I don't care about the alone part but I don't want to be forgotten; especially by my family. I don't fear any of these because I know my family will never forget me.

  • Billions and billions have done before me, many who've been much more deserving of being remembered. Why would I want to be?
