My annoying nature of always asking why?

The function of the question is to attain information or clarification right? My questions tend to be like interviews at times; especially lately. I annoy the hell out of others with my childlike and repeated use of the heuristic function Why? I am seeking the truth from the best and the brightest. Those whose answers are direct and provided with little hesitation; a mark of sincerity. I am looking for that one who is where I am. One who is searching but finding the task exhausting and even sad at times. It is a journey they say and I need to be present in each moment. Where are the true ones? Are there others like me? Those who are annoyed by trivia and drama that burden so many? The priorities of life are crystal clear to me. The love of family, an appreciation of health, a sense of loyalty, kindness to all and truth. The litmus test of character resides within my questions. I do not care to waste my time or caring on those who are apathetic. Perhaps this direct manner is a gift of my age; just as the wrinkles about my eyes are the punctuation of my days. I am as light in spirit as I have ever been; but seem to have an inability to trust what I hear. I work with those who cannot speak; in a traditional manner. I can decipher their looks of need and sense their illness and frustrations without a sound uttered. For the life of me I cannot seem to trust the messages from the rest of the speaking world. Do I think I will receive the real answer or just the surface one? No – not the real answer with words anyways. The fear of insecurity prevent many from stating the real answer. Knowing this fact will not prevent me from asking the questions.
