Philosophical Thought Is Me

There is nothing better, to me, than contradicting my own contradictions. Why do I say one thing and do another? What are my REAL opinions and beliefs?  I've worked hard to become less of a walking contradiction than most people I know, but a lot of people don't appreciate a carefully sculpted mind.

I think a lot of people don't realize how much they really don't know. That they haven't asked themselves, and come to thoughtful conclusion the important, and difficult questions concerning life. That they often ardently say one thing, and in action do the contradictory. The mere act of giving pause to acknowledge this is a step toward wisdom, and arete.

Thank you siddler for your encouragement

I can appreciate a carefully sculpted mind. Just recognizing that you are naturally hypocritical and contradictory goes a long way, most people would refuse to admit that of themselves. And attempting to limit your contradictions is definitely respectable.
