I Spend a Lot of Time Questioning Things

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,684 People

    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 =/

    I question everything.

    I think it's good to question things in a general sense, but sometimes I drive myself crazy questioning things that I already know or can never find the answers to. But I do like the fact that it makes me think, and allows me to be more confident in my opinions without...
