When you think about your own death, you may ponder about the reactions of those around you. Will they be sad? Have regrets? Celebrate your life? You think about your parents, close family, your best friend, your boyfriend, maybe your co-workers…. But I got some perspective today. Today I cried for a person. A person of whom I knew their name, and little else. I had talked to this person, once, maybe twice. But nontheless, I cried, for him, for the loss of him. And this taught me a vast lesson. Never underestimate what your life means to anyone. Thanks Stephen, I didn’t know you in your life and now I wish I had, but you taught me in your death and I wish you hadn’t.
~Marie from Harry met Sally” —13. The fear of being alone for the rest of your life, is the worst fear there is for your future, and so many people have this fear it’s sad to think that. (via things-we-think)
