Ever since I was a child people have been telling me that I’m “too curious” and sometimes they’ve even asked me to stop asking so many difficult questions. I have never figured out why some people don’t like curiosity or why or when people stop asking important questions without any obvious answers (the best kind).
For me it’s unthinkable to stop asking questions or questioning the obvious or exploring the unknown. In fact, I think it would dangerous if I would lose my curiosity and my strive to learn more and try to make sense of things. Then my mind would be closed off, shut down and I wouldn’t be able to grow and develop myself anymore. I believe that if we constantly want to grow and maintain our inner selves and if we try to expand our empathy and intellect, that that’s the true core of our existence.
