that is… oddly wholesomeShort answer: no
Long answer: there are people in my life that, if they weren't around anymore, I would never be the same again. However, that doesn't mean I couldn't live without them. In fact, it's the opposite. If they were gone, I would force myself to keep living, because now my memories of them is all that's left, and I have to live on, to continue them living (in some way) as well.
