After My Death, I Want To Be Remembered Like This

If I’m dead and one year has gone by since I want people to remember me as a woman who fought for her and other people’s existence on earth and at the same time trying to help others by who they are and who they want to be.

At the same time, I want to be remembered as a human being who had done a lot for the community. But never forget to think about herself (which I’m doing right now, so a lot of work to do though).

I want people to remember me as a writer who made other people think about their existence through her stories, about important topics, to make them a better human being and to make them better in our world and think about the world as well — in any kind of form.

I want people to think about how they treat other people in their lives. How they treat the world, not only the people but also the earth itself: the animals, the plants, the woods, the places and everything in between. I want to learn people about why sustainability is really important for their existence and for the existence of their children. I want to leave the world in a good way.

To me, it is important to play an instrument, it is to me that I will show off the world the benefits of playing an instrument. The benefits of learning your brain do all the work by thinking about the world, thinking about our actions towards others, the way we see the world and say things to other people.

I want to learn people after me, what I learned so they don’t make the same mistake as I did. I want to do that through my stories I write on Medium and elsewhere. I want people to remember me how I wrote books that make a change but are still fantasies of my brain but have reality aspects of life.

I also want to fight for other people’s rights, I want to let people know I fought for them when they can’t, because someone has to do this, but also not losing myself.
