SoCS: Insight

We are all looking for insight from the time we starting asking (incessantly) “Why?” as toddlers.

Sometimes “why” is the proper question to ask, but, as an adult, there are times when it isn’t helpful. I find it particularly unhelpful when people ask why God/nature/fate allowed such-and-such to happen.

I think a better question is “How?” How do I help? How do I move forward? How do I learn more about this situation, circumstance, idea, or person?

Why often isn’t relevant or isn’t mine to know.

  1. This makes me remember journalism class where we learned to ask “who, what, where, when and why.) This post has made me think, you’re right, sometimes we should be asking how instead of why. I must confess, I haven’t done this often enough. Thanks for reminding that it is so much better to offer to help rather than simply asking why. We all can help, even if only in a small way, each according to their ability.


      1. OMG! Sorry about that, I guess I clicked on the WP button down there and it changed my comment to be one from a non-WP blogger… Those comments above are from me, again, sorry…


      2. Wait a minute, this means that I probably could comment on people’s blogs “incogneto” and flame their comments! Oh, if I was evil I would so do that! 😉 But I’m not, no really I’m not… 😉
