Every now and then, I feel this impending doom overbearing, making me think that whatever I do is just not enough. This isn’t a new occurrence for me or one that is limited to me. However, it makes me wonder why I end up imposing such harsh expectations on myself at times. And the conclusion I reach is that I give a substantial amount of importance to leaving a legacy for those around me and the ones who’ll come after.
As I mentioned above, the pressure to leave a legacy isn’t one that I face alone. Rather, I see so many carry this burden every day. Is it worth taking this burden, though? If yes, then is it really a burden, and if not, why do we choose to carry it? So many questions come up with this little line of thought, so I felt it might be a good discussion to initiate with this issue.
