Ever get into one of those cycles where many of your thoughts are questions? How long did your longest cycle last? Is this an occupational hazard for philosophy scholars?
If I share a few questions from my current cycle, will you join me? Promise?
* Aside from fear, what prevents me from trying anything?
* Which paralyzes me more - fear of approval or fear of failure? What other fears are there?
** If it's fear of approval, what prevents me from trying anything when I'm alone?
** If it's fear of failure, why does the question "What's the worst that can happen?" sometimes help me transcend my fears and other times not work at all?
* Is asking why something doesn't work always a waste of time?
And the triggering event for this cycle? How badly do you want to know?
