    Who isn't? If anyone thinks they have life

    totally figure out, they are fooling themselves. There are always unanswered questions, mysteries that we won't ever understand. That's part of the fun (and the pain) of being alive.

    Is anyone really ever done?

    The minute we think we've figured it all out, a new mystery pops up that we need to solve.

    Misnomer

    We call it a broken heart- that anguish, that searing pain, when someone leaves. If they die, eventually (one hopes) there is acceptance. They have gone to a better place; they are at peace, one day I will be reunited with them. These phrases help us cope; they are comforting...

    Just Merely Survival

    Can't believe how thing everyday went to be so common, I live in an ordinary life which is the only goal is just a merely survival. Live an ordinary and predicted life is so boring. Same things happen day by day. Nothing to be expected to happen.

    Neverending Task

    I don't believe we ever stop "figuring life out". As we grow, our brains change and we learn different things, which then prompt us to behave differently, and the process goes on and on until we return to the place from which we came.
