I believe cultivating a gentle, loving acceptance of one's self takes tremendous courage because the path is often painful. It's not for the faint of heart.

Because life is about learning and questions are the tools of learning. Answers are illusions of knowledge. The reality described by answers is often temporary or one that exists only within a very narrowly defined set of parameters. They are often subjective; an answer for one person may not be the same as one for another. Answers can also be wrong. When one comes right down to it, what good are answers?

That's the beauty of life! Life is always full of questions, but not so many answers. It may be helpful for you to focus on the journey itself, rather than its endpoints; life is a marathon, not a sprint to the finish line. Keep asking questions, and enjoy the ride.

Sometimes the answer is a question. It helps to narrow down what you are looking for. In order for an answer to arise there must be a conclusion to which direction you want to go. If live wasn't a challenge we would go around questioning why. The challenge and conquering gives us the feeling of accomplishment. When you don't meet your goal then maybe you're trying to take too big of a bite. Refine your goal and take it in steps.

We forget that the journey is half the fun. The answers change as you change anyway, at least that's the goal. I'd hate to never be proved wrong.

While we search for the things we want, we often miss the things we need. Mostly, we need to just let life go the way it's going to and deal with situations as they arise. Letting things bother you and pile up will only make life more unbearable. Life is short enough as it is and in some cases, can be made even shorter. We need to just learn to stop asking and just live it.

you keep learning, you keep growing. answers, you gotta stop looking for them, ultimately, it's up to you if you wanna answer the question. you're the only one who knows the answer.

The more we learn, the more we want to learn. When we were children, we had simple answers to simple questions. As we grow older, our curiosity about the world and ourselves increases, but so does the complexity of the questions we ask. There will always be unanswered questions, because there will always be questions.

Because there will be a day when you solve the puzzle ,each of the questions were a piece and when you join them altogether there you'll find all your answers.

As you go through life you're bound to learn new things, and the more information you gather the more curious you'll be. Questioning things is a natural part of growing up and is nothing to be worried about, the answers will come eventually.

We have to learn from our own experience. That is the way to find answers. See what you have around, and you became to find what you're looking for.

Life is full of questions and only a few answers. you will find answers later in life. Not everything will have an answer.

I guess that is completely normal. That's just how life goes. You'll ask yourself a lot of questions and things will always turn out differently than you expect them to and eventually at some point of your life things will fall into place and until then just be happy that there are no answers. Embrace it. Be happy without the answers 'cause being curious is very good but don't let it take over your whole life.

Knowledge comes with experience and time. When u gain the knowledge it will all be worth it. Just give yourself time to experience and learn and soon enough you will figure out the answers. Remember there is no right or wrong answers when it comes to life, its self thought and learned.

I suppose that is the glory of getting older. You begin questioning not only yourself but your entire life around you. But what's amazing is, these answers can come in different ways, and whether they are answered tomorrow or in 20 years, eventually your questions will disipate and you'll be left with a lot of experience with life.

Sometimes we go through life to find answers but can't, I understand how you feel. We need to dig deeper into our questions to discover the answers!

This is a very good question! I am so glad you asked this. I know many people with this same question, and honestly, the easiest way i can answer this, is by saying, "Life is a backwards classroom. You are given the test before the lesson" What that means, is we are often met face to face with difficult situations, that we have never encountered before, leaving us with more questions than answers. And unfortunately we arent always guaranteed the answers we so desperately need.

Because you need to create the answers yourself. Meaning is only found when you are the driving force behind it.
