Not Every Question Needs an Answer 
by MemoryandDream

Not every puzzle needs to be solved.
Not every riddle needs a solution.
Not every query needs a reply.

Not everything needs to be tagged, explained, numbered and filed away.

Many times, it is the mystery of the answer that drives us; the idea of the question itself. It's not always about knowing the outcome so much as taking the journey.

I say this - and here, in the otherkin forum - because people get so obsessed with "solving" their mysteries ( who am I? what type? what is my purpose? ) instead of just accepting them. Not only will you never have all the answers (and what a damned boring life it would be if you did), but those you DO come to learn will come slowly over time. You can't expect to know everything about yourself in a day or a week or a year.

It's ok to learn. It's ok to ask. It's ok to listen. But they don't need nicely defined resolutions to make them any less valid.

I see people all the time longing for something that will make them feel like they understand, or that one, vital thing which will make it alright. The whole while, they are missing that it IS alright and that the idea is the process of learning and being.

Seek for answers but do not require them.
Ask questions but accept them as they are.
Enjoy the journey instead of waiting to arrive at the location.
In this, you will find comfort, and solace and wisdom.


Just a reminder to all those who desperately search for meaning and answers.
