I started by researching UFOs and came across this awesome site. I lurked for a year or so and decided to join. I honestly think ATS has made me a better person, it has introduced me to whole new worlds, and a whole new way of thinking.
I love ATS.

Because my frustrations in life eventually caused me to think that there must be more to this life than just fulfilling your dreams, finding a wife, building a family and die with a smile. My #1 frustration, my job was way way far from my dream job #1, #2, #3.... My #2 frustration, my relationships with women has always been a failure. Until eventually, I gave up running after those things in life.
I even reached the point to think that those things - career, family, and social life are distraction to our personal quest for the truth, unlocking our potential, and the purpose of life!
Soon, I found satisfaction in the simple things, nature, animals, astronomy, and science. I also put myself on the quest for truth and knowledge. And now, I'm not as frustrated before, sometimes I even feel to be better off than people I know that have their dreams fulfilled!
Think I'm crazy? Blame my life's frustrations to it! Anyone else blame life's frustration for becoming a free-thinker??

I think you should not look at it this way, eventually you need to find other things besides searching for the truth, in case you find it, who are you going to tell? that will be around to listen to you and believe??
