I’ve decided if I haven’t made something of myself by the time I’m 40, I will commit seppuku
I recently converted to Shintoism and one of the aspects that attracted me to it was the emphasis on honoring ones family. I’m thirty and haven’t done much with my life. I’ve decided to finish school and become someone important. If I cannot do this by the time I’m 40 I will be very ashamed. If this happens, I will commit seppuku to bring honor to my family.
