Perhaps this belongs here. Perhaps it doesn't.

I, like all other human beings, am complex. (Quite the selfish line, now, isn't it?)
How do you understand yourself? How do you understand the reasoning behind your actions? And if you don't, how do you ignore this problem?

Perhaps I think to much into it when I wonder if all my victim mentality and out-loud self-deprecation is all an act to draw more attention... Perhaps I think I have something wrong with myself because I want to have something wrong with myself. Perhaps I'm writing this post for a selfish desire to be comforted of some thing?

Sometimes I'd rather like to be accurately analyzed by a third party, because I am biased and confused about my thoughts on my cognitive processes. However, this means entrusting myself completely to an entity I am in no control of. The solution, I suppose, is to make some AI (that I'm in full control of) that can accurately explain the reasoning behind my thoughts.

Well, I currently don't have the ability to do that. Or perhaps I'm just too lazy to.

Comment: This is in essence a rant. Where does this thread belong, if not in some trash?

To make any assumptions or statements about yourself, you first have to trust your own judgement. If you can’t trust your own judgement, you also can’t trust that you can’t trust your judgement. So, you’re all balled up and can’t get anywhere.

Also, how is not knowing the reasoning behind your actions a problem?

Although, maybe I’m just a simple person, I don’t find my motivations and actions all that hard to follow.

I do understand how it is tempting to assume something is wrong with yourself though. This, I can’t really explain away easily. If there is something wrong with oneself, it just feels like a cheap cop-out. All thought would stop for me there. Like, “oh well, I’m sick, what can ya do shrug”. So, I just put that to the side for the unproductiveness of that thought.

Let’s say you got the answer to why you do all your actions. What would it change? Is it to just indulge your own curiosity? Is it a way to escape responsibility?

Apologies in advance for the dumb post. I'm not really sure if I'm replying correctly. I'm probably completely off topic, don't judge me.

I don't know what actions you're talking about. You'd have to be more specific. It depends on the actions. Aren't actions fueled by intentions? If you ignore the reasoning behind your actions, once again I'm not sure what you're talking about, actions can have consequences or result in another type of impact.

All I know is every individual has their own unique life, a life with ups and downs, we're all different with our own separate experiences. I'm done thinking or trying to understand everything. If you find you are having troubling thoughts, maybe you need to change your thinking pattern. Focus on now and the future. What's done is done, don't drown yourself in the complexities of life, its a waste of precious time and energy that could be used somewhere else. Move forward a day at a time with hope.

self-consistency and homeostasis are vastly stronger instincts than self-improvement. A human would rather retain its flaws and complexes for the sake of maintaining a "self".

let go of the self, become the sum of your actions.

Self knowledge is elusive but worthwhile because the ability to control oneself is the essential foundation upon which you take control of your life.

You cannot choose what happens to you but you can choose how to respond.
