    Not Me...

    I know they can. They didn't want me around in the first place. So, whatever.

    I mean, usually I have that mindset like "Nobody would miss me when I'm gone. Sure, some people may be sad for a while, but it won't have a lasting effect on anyone." But if I'm gone, who will help my mum with the dishes when nobody else will? When I'm gone, who will go fishing...
