Is it normal after reading philosophical material to feel like you've been blind for some time of your life? I'm asking this because I was never interested in anything that had to deal with philosophy. After I read some philosophical material I felt like I didn't really know anything. Not only that, but my views on religion have changed. It's almost like I've lost my faith after I read some topics on philosophy. Is this normal or more of a personal experience?
Years ago when I entered the field of philosophy I might have written exactly the same thing as you. Doing philosophy (well) means being willing to challenge those things previously taken for granted. This is exciting (eye opening) as well as, sometimes, troubling. If you are the only person you know who is doing this, it can also be lonely. I suggest that you find some philosophers to talk to.
