Why are we afraid to question?
I've always wondered if people ask themselves the right questions…the internal questions that serve as filters for our minds and mouths. The ones that make us think before we speak or DO. Because maybe asking ourselves the right questions will lead to truths about ourselves we really don't want to be made aware of. Certain truths about ourselves can always be changed…most adjectives we use to describe ourselves and others could change at anytime, if we ask the right questions. But most people don't because they are too lazy to do anything about changing or are too weak to face the truth.
Sometimes, we take a different wrong turn: asking questions of self that we need to ask of someone else. When I dread hearing an answer that I have no control over, I tend to overanalyze. Why did she say this? Why did he do that? When the real answer doesn't exist in me, but in someone else. I know this is mostly because of fear of a response I don't want to deal with or an answer I may not want hear, but some questions are necessary. It's better to be afraid than to regret not hearing something you may have learned from.
If you don't ask the right question, you may never get the right answer.
