So, the bloodline might end with me

This was an interesting mental development: the understanding that the bloodline might end with me. That’s a lot of pressure. I have one sibling, and she is undecided on kids. I secretly hope she just has them, so our generation doesn’t have to feel bad about ending our family’s bloodline. I wish my decision not to have kids didn’t affect so many other people. I didn’t mean to put an end to our bloodline. But, there is a nagging guilt that comes with that possibility.
