Someone said something very profound to me today. The streets you walk round each and every day have been there long before you were born and probably will be there long after your life is over. I have not thought about life like that before. What ever we are going though and what our life is like we are just a small blip in time. I have lived in a number of houses/apartments and you wonder what the new residents will think over the years - will anything I put in the house/apartment still be there and is discussed or will it all change over time and any trace of me disappear just as people come and go just as new memories come and go for them. Has anyone ever wondered what it would like to return once your gone for a long long time in terms of someone’s life and nobody you know still lives/exists?

My family is in the middle of a ancestry n dna study and turns out three generations on my dads side, my dads grandad came from ireland made up a false name so the last name I've sported my entire life was all based on a lie. Guess it's similar to what you are saying... His choice and his mysteriously life has impacted us three generations. We're so close to getting his real name though

I have this same realization when I look at the stars on a clear night. It's one of the few things that comforts me - knowing how old and vast the universe is, how truly insignificant I am in the grand scheme of things. It kind of helps me put my problems into perspective, and allows me to not sweat the small stuff as much.

I've thought like that most of my life. It's actually why I panic a little at the thought of dying...the idea of simply "not existing." I know it'll eventually happen regardless of whether I CTB or not but it freaks me the fuck out. Like, everything will just..go on. I know I'm not the center of the universe (trust me, that's been made ABUNDANTLY clear since I was quite young lol) but when I'm the only mind I'm in it feels that way? Idk how to explain it. But knowing how short my life is in the life of the universe (or smaller scale: the world) freaks me out.

I'm alive now and no one gives a fuck about me except my Dad who loves me and my Mom who relies on me to care for my dying Dad. No one else helps or cares enough to help. Just trying to hold out until my Dad passes, which is getting harder everyday.

Yip are lives are nothing in the grand scheme of things, not that I'd even know what that scheme is or why.
