Legacy

FrankieCon 2019.

Because I spend a lot of time thinking about death, I spend an equal amount of time thinking about legacy.

Not necessarily the big things. The scientific discoveries or philanthropic donations. No, I mean stuff like how you treat people.

And how you post things on the internet.

If you died tomorrow, the way that you presented yourself on the ‘net would be a topic of discussion at your funeral. If you’re the type who shitposts or stirs the pot, just because — that is what people will remember about you.

Forever.

It sounds dramatic, but it’s not. If I would have died ten years ago, I would have died an angry brat with potential but a whole lot of petty problems. And that was on me, as much as being in your twenties is.

I hope if I died right here, right now, I would be something different than that. That the words and wake I leave behind are better than that. And I know it’s easy to click and share — you’re reading this, so you know I do — but I hope you always remember that everything you do is an extension of who you are.

Every day, every minute, every second — that’s your legacy.

For better or worse, make it yours.

I'm me, of course. Or am I?
