“Would anybody realize if I disappeared?”
Is this a question you ask yourself often?
Well, I’d like for you to know that somebody will realize if you disappeared. People will realize and they will not be okay.
The dog you fed biscuits on the way to the bus stop will wonder why you didn’t show today. The bus conductor you apologized to for being late will miss your apology. The friend you always shared music with will wonder what to do in the bus without you. The little girl who gave you food will be upset when she sees you’re not there.
Your friends at school will always feel like something is missing. Your teachers will miss your arguments. Your principal will be surprised you didn’t get caught bunking and the librarian will miss your fitfully noisy laughter that disrupted the silence of the library.
And your best friend. Oh, your best friend will be crushed. She’ll miss the way you walked with her. She’ll miss how you always told her things first. She’ll miss the way your face lit up when you saw her. She’ll miss her best friend more than anyone.
Your mother will have nobody to scream at and your father will have nobody to spoil. Your brother will have no one to annoy and your little sister will have no one to look up to.
The boy living across the hall from you will miss seeing you in your pajamas. The boy having a crush on you will wonder where you went. Your ex will have no one to reminisce with and your boyfriend will have no one to make future plans with.
You ask yourself, “Would anybody realize if I disappeared?”.
The truth is they would. You make a difference in this world. Your absence will affect so many people in ways you wouldn’t be able to imagine. You’re important and no one can make you feel not so. Keep that in mind
And never, ever try to disappear.
