The very act of living can make a person very confused sometimes. This can lead to thousands of grand questions like what should I be doing, why do people act this way, or the granddaddy of them all, what’s the point. You consciously know that these questions don’t have answers but sometimes we all get caught up in wondering. This can cause more problems in life like depression, anxiety, and loneliness. While a little bit of wondering would do anyone some good, are you taking it a bit too far? Is it interrupting your everyday life and negatively affecting your motivation in life? That is when feeling confused about life should be stopped. There is a simple fact that can permanently change your outlook on those impossible questions that you might want to consider.
It's not as hard as you think
As Dr.Seuss once said, “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” Asking a broad question like, what is the point, is impossible to answer. It’s too broad and all encompassing. The same goes for all the challenging life questions. If I was to ask you, who’s the person, while not pointing or looking anywhere, could you answer that question? Of course not. You can’t answer an impossibly broad question even if you’re the one asking it. Stop asking yourself these questions without adjusting them first.
Asking A Better Question
These questions can be very useful for guiding someone through life when adjusted properly. Whenever you feel the need to ask yourself these questions you need to run them through your head a few times first. Ask yourself, is this question possible to answer and how can I make it easier to answer. What’s the point can be adjusted to what’s the point of my life so far. This adds a specific person to the question. It also adds allows you to ignore the unpredictable future. This question is much more practical to answer.
Pick the Right Answers
The results of the new questions can still be sobering. Maybe the reason why someone did something bad to you is because they are a cruel person. It’s very possible that that is true. Unfortunately, we never do have enough facts to be sure about anything we say. We have to use a lot of caution when pondering the way other people think. We even have to use a lot of caution when pondering the way we think. Days from now anyones opinion can change. Take the question, What do I want to do with my life. That is an impossibly broad question because it includes no mention of time. If one year from now you’re stranded in a desert starving to death what you want out of life will be altered dramatically (maybe a burger and a glass of water.) When we can’t predict the future we can’t predict what we will want out of it. A better question is, what do I want to do with my life right now. That can lead to better answers.
Sometimes, even when all the questions are cleared up, we still feel confused. That’s ok. That’s a natural thing to do. We try to make everything so perfectly complicated that we get lost. To never get caught up in this again, all you have to know is that if you can’t specify exactly what is making confused then it might as well not exist. Until you get more information on the table, you shouldn’t even worry about them. The imagine the question I asked you was, “...........” Could you answer that? No? Then don’t worry about it. It will get better once you get back into life. So get back into life.
