Why you question who you are:
I don't question myself, I question what my purpose in life is...

We're all born in this world with an immediate identity.
a name & birthday

Why question who you are? You only do that if you have major amnesia.

Question your PURPOSE, not your IDENTITY...
( because your name's right there on that piece of paper found in City Hall )

Have you ever looked in the mirror and didn't know who was looking back at you?? The better question would be which is the real you and who is just the reflection.

Why you question who you are:
Nothing wrong with questioning yourself, if you can accept whatever you eventually find (whether your able to find an answer or not). Its when you refuse to understand or acknowledge what you find that will cause you problems.

As far as identity goes, its not just who you believe you are but also who others acknowledge you are. If your weak/strong enough, others can change your identity just as well as you can change your identity in the eyes of others.

Purpose... I can't really get into without contradicting myself or trapping myself into a corner.

Why you question who you are: Hmm, that may be the more difficult question... probably because I'm curious, but that's really a simplistic answer.

Have you wondered who you are??

I usually dismiss the question by saying I am me, and just continue to make myself the person I want to be. I do, however, often wonder who I could be, in the furture or if things in my life had gone differently.

Have you ever stopped to question that this is the real you??

Yes. I often wonder if this is me, or if my paranoia about becoming someone else has prevented me from expressing my true self... a self I might not like.

Have you ever looked in the mirror and didn't know who was looking back at you??

Nah, I don't do that very much.

@ sakurafan318: Most people I know wouldn't define their identity as the information found on the average state issued photo id... and that's not just because most of them are anarchists. Anywho, I would define a person's identity as the qualities of personality and belief that make up who they are... govern how they interact with others.

Purpose is also an important question though. I don't have a god or greater being to give me one, so I'm an existentialist. I essentially give myself a purpose by deciding what's most important to me... which happens to be other people.

@ simo2332: I heartily agree with questioning everything. Sadly, I feel that not everything has a reason, at least as far as thinking beings are concerned. Certainly everything has a cause... but purpose and reason generally require some kind of forethought or design. I guess this is largely up to your personal beliefs, but I'm open to discussion.

Pretty much, each person is going to have a different idea of what the meaning of "purpose" actually is. Debating it is kind of a waste of energy since there isn't any real black/white, right or wrong answer to it that will apply to everyone.

Age: Old and tired of it

Why I question who I am:

I have questioned myself many times. I struggle to create a balance in my life, but I am never truly forfilled or truly satisfied with the direction I am taking because an emptiness appears everytime I am close to reaching a point of satisfaction. I am man of many contradictions that stretch in many different directions which I am never able to reach because I am overstretched. Unless I find the answer, I am stuck where I am.
