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.
