philosopher

About Me: I am your Inner Philosopher, and like a modern day Renaissance man, I am talented, smart, interesting, well traveled, well read, and can speak passionately for hours about any subject.

I am widely admired, though sometimes I come off as arrogant and pompous to some people, but don’t worry, those people are just ignorant and insecure. I love having name-dropping philosophical conversations over coffee, about politics and current events, art, literature, the newest exhibits at the museums – and quite frankly, there are more interesting things to talk about than your friend’s personal life or their newest drama.

And if you let me, I keep you from developing meaningful and fulfilling relationships and practicing compassion toward others.
