I sit here and wonder what ever I do in life where ever I go no matter how big of an impact. In afew hundred or a thousand years my life will not matter and everyone will have forgotten about me.

Like at one point In time someone whether its a grandchild or a great grandchild or someone completely random will think about me for the last time and I will be forgotten forever.

Your right I'm sure. Can you name family members form 1000 years ago?
And unless your like super famous or something everyone will be forgotten

I'm pretty sure everyone has existential thoughts occasionally. The only thing I can think of is to do something so meaningful with your life, change the world in such a way that you won't be forgotten. Plus, when you're dead you most likely won't notice you've been forgotten. ^_^

I would imagine that what you think about and have said happens to all people unless you got world famous. I seriously doubt that there is any way to really change that.

focus on the present not the past. You can always move forward but you can't spend your life dwelling about things out of your control.

Yeah, I relate with you on so many levels! Everyone says who you can't change the way you feel or to just stop feeling it don't understand, it's just so hard and it keeps chewing at your thoughts. Look, yeah, I think you'll have to work hard, forging on, and you need to make sure that through this hard work, you won't be forgotten (if that's what is worrying you).
I think that somone raised a good point though that you won't feel forgotten once you pass away, and that on your death bed, think about what you really want: to be remembered, or to have spent time with loved ones, for having no regrets etc.
