It’s in the questions we ask

“Ask me how” said at the back of the t-shirt of a girl I encountered in the bus. Maybe it’s a marketing tool used by some random advertising company.

Ask me how.

Three simple words that made me think on why we always ask WHY instead of HOW.

When people have problems, they rant about it, get mad and lonely about it, but in the end, they do nothing about it. Probably because they always ask why things happened to them and not ask how things ended up that way and how things would work their way.

How? It is a question barely asked and seldom answered.

How did it started?
How do you want to end it?
How did you cook it?
How is that possible?
How did you got here?
How did you do it?

“How?” triggers people to think of solutions than problems. While “Why?” seeks on tracing the past and connecting it with the future.

How will I make things better? VS Why do these things happen to me?

“How” could uplift you while “Why” could be a downer sometimes.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to what we ask ourselves: how? Or why?

Why would I ask how?
How would I even begin to explain the reason why?

Hmmmm…
