While typing a comment in response to Journey’s post, I suddenly recall something someone I know said. She said, “I don’t get it. Why are you still tied down by the expectations of others and the obligations you have in your life? If you are really close to the end of your life, shouldn’t you just heck the care of anything – since everything is meaningless anyway – and do something, I don’t know, out of this world? Like, going to Japan and help the victims?”
She later gave the analogy of how a terminally ill patient would not bother with anything else and would be excused to do anything he/she wanted or finds meaning in.
What is the problem in trying that? The only problem I can foresee… is someone not having any wants at all. In that case, then do something that finds common appeal. Like voluntary work, as my friend suggested.
