Hmmm... say you were planning on killing yourself in the future. Do you think it'd be best to kind of sever ties with your "friends"/family? I.E. Do something that makes your mom totally pissed off at you and disown you, like you never talk to her again kind of thing and eventually everything blows over but you still don't talk to each other anymore. If you do this w/everyone you know, you'll be completely alone and everyone will sort of forget about you/not miss you. So when you die, they're sad, but they're like oh well we weren't best buddies anyway. As opposed to you being loving towards them and then all of a sudden you die and they miss you terribly. But then again they would feel guilty for never mending the relationship. With that in mind, you could make your relationships fall apart on purpose, but then still talk to them now and then, but always have that underlying I don't like you feeling in all of your relationships so that way they're not as sad when you go. So they may think, she/he was such a troubled, confused person, I'm sad they're gone, but it's not like she was an awesome energetic perfect person who is now making the world worse from her absence kind of thing. What do you think?
