Reading blogs - including blogs of people you don't know but read regularly - is a weird experience because it lets you get to know people's mental and emotional state much better than it would happen in real life. And also because it often makes me want to comment asking "But whyyyyy? Why do you think this/react like this to that?" except that this is a kind of question you don't ask someone you don't know (or, often, someone you know either).

(I never grew out of the desire to ask 'Why?' - and for things like 'why do you like the thing you like', too: I was told again and again this is not a question to ask, and it doesn't have any answer, but that just made me want to find an answer. And made me get better at self-analysis, because no one else would try and tease out why).

(By now I am fairly sure I would not really understand the answer - but it would expand my mental base of "people react like this to that - weird but true")

... about the weird things that make me want to ask 'why' - too many people around seem to believe their life has two modes, "I am totally adjusted, have good plans and follow them all the time" and "I am a hopeless failure and my life is a mess". But whyyy... or better, how?

The second mode happens to me quite often, but the first is practically alien. My alternative mode is something like: things are so interesting right now, there's no time to bother evaluating if I'm well adjusted or not. )

Oh! Guess you're right. So, when I feel adjusted I just don't notice it. )

Hi, dear taelle!
You have sbscribed to my journal. Do you understand Russian?

*****Reading blogs - including blogs of people you don't know but read regularly - is a weird experience because it lets you get to know people's mental and emotional state much better than it would happen in real life.****

I guess I can agree with you. Especially that it is a wierd experience. And with all that concernes the two modes. And as for the latter I might know the answer.

I don't remember now exactly what I wanted to say, but purhaps it was something concerning the idea of happiness.

Very often happiness is regarded as something like a high mountain: as soon as you have managed to climb it, you will remain there ever, ever and forever. Therefore one is either in a valley (somewhere at the bottom of the mountain), or right on the peak.

But happiness is not a mountain peak, it is a process. It is a way to many peaks. After one has climbed a mountain he can see another one, purhaps an upper mountain. And to climb it one has to go down to the valley again.
