Where the question is also the answer

Am I a good person?

The earnest act of asking yourself if you’re a good person is a sign that you truly are one. This question also contains the kernel of its answer within itself. And good people can never answer this question with a resounding ‘yes’.

Am I being complacent?

The self-awareness it takes to earnestly pose this question also serves as a guardrail against complacency. Therefore, this question is only posed by those who aren’t complacent. Further, these are also people who cannot answer this question with a resounding ‘no’.

Some lingering doubts are healthy, for they stem from the part of us that is the guardian of our own betterment.
