I Spend a Lot of Time Questioning Things

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,596 People

    How big is the universe?

    Is there other life out there? Why does society so judgey? Why can't I do what I want? It's my body and I should be able to. Am I going to turn out like my mom? Will my future kids hate me? What if I lose the people close to me? Will I end up alone? Why do I still feel along if...

    Old Thoughts

    I used to think, this restless mind, the burden it was, like a virus. Starts somewhere in your mind somehow, and eventually consumes the entirety of your thought process (maybe existence?). Funny things are today I find it the cure that enlightened me, and made me an...

    I spend far too much time questioning things. Also reading too much into things. I think it's the root of my paranoia.

    Currently Questioning Everything.

    I tend to question everything. Authority, rules, people....life. So many things are so odd or pointless that you just have to question them. So many things fail to make any sense to me... especially when I question about how the world came to be and such. It kind of scares me =/

    Why Am I Cursed With Such a Horrible Life?

    Why do people mentally torture me & think it's funny? Why do so many people hate me? Why do they choose ME to pick on, for NO reason!

    There Are No Answers

    I question everything. Even the existence of truth. Epistemology the philosophers call it. I don't think it exists. Sure, we all develop beliefs about things. But I have a deep seated intuition that this world is not what it seems. We are all living in an elaborate illusion...

    Look Up First, Ask Second

    There is just so much information out there. Every time I learn something new, or read about something, questions pop into my head. My favorite for most things is "why?" but I also like proposing experiments or asking "what would happen if...?" When you stop asking questions you...

    The simplest details have stories behind them,

    this is this way because its meant to be the way it is. I really like finding out the reason of why the things are the way they are. It can amaze you what you find out by just stopping and questioning what surrounds you.

    And Why Not?
