When you die, it doesn't matter how many people cry or how many people show up to offer their condolences. Nothing matters anymore. Because you are gone. All our lives we live according to the societal norms and condition ourselves into factoring in what people will think before we act or even think. Our opinions are shaped according to what is expected of us and not what we really think and believe. And all that is gone as soon as we are. Nobody's opinions about us matter then. So instead of living our lives for other people and their opinions we should let it go. We should live the way we want. Do what we wish to do without caring what other people think. The consequences of our actions lie upon us and not others so it doesn't matter squat what anyone else thinks or expects of us.
