Im sure there are a thousand different remedies or ways to do certain things but is it necessary to know all the remedies? Nope.
You have described me to a tee. They say the unexamined life is not worth living, but I have to say the over-examined life is even worse. The knowledge you gain on a daily basis is large, but after a certain point it consumes you. You start to base your self-worth on your knowledge, which even makes you narcissistic; yet its never enough so you always feel inferior to those around you. You also find yourself never trusting your instinct, thinking out possible solutions even when you KNOW what should be done. This can many times be counterproductive, sometimes dangerous. And the ultimate frustration is the paralysis. Even on decisions you can analyze without worry, you can never decide. Because you see, hear, think too much. There's never one solution, or even two, there's about 10, 100, or sometimes even an infinite number of possibilities. All of this, needless to say can cause some extreme mental and emotional frustration, fatigue, and ultimately despair.

I guess that's my random thought. BTW its just a rant, not a state of being.
