365 Writing Prompt: No longer a mortal
You’ve imbibed a special potion that makes you immortal.Now that you’ve got forever what changes will you make in your life? how will you live differently , knowing you’ll always be around to be accountable for your actions?
When I think of immortal, I think of all the definitions of this word: living forever; not mortal; divine;likely or worthy to be famous for all time; a person of enduring fame.
I think I’d rather be mortal than live up to any of these definitions. I am comfortable with the life I’m living, any change from it will not be desirable for me.
The fact that I’ll be expected to live differently is not a favorable option. The idea of trying things that I have not done before will be a pain for me, and the idea I’ll always be around to be accountable for my actions is not appealing to me.
I think I’m doing all right,I’m a good person. I am not anxious to be famous, fame can be a difficult thing.Think about Princess Diana, she was famous, she never had her privacy, there were people always ready to take advantage of her in all sorts of ways, she eventually paid the price, she died at a very young age.
My life is simple,I go where I want to, I visit my friends without being interrupted by outsiders. I am free, to me this is the best way of living my life. I do not mind being mortal.
Thank you for this post. I agree with you that life is good as it is.
All good wishes,
Yes Robert why change when we are doing well.
you are so right. When we become celebrated in some form we are followed around. How nice to have anonymity of some kind.
Thank you Leslie.
