  1. Thank you for your insight. I very much identify with the acceptance of reality. I am finding the objectivist philosophy useful in processing my thoughts more so than a follower of Rand in particular.
  2. Just introducing myself. I'm a recent casual student of objectivism that is finding myself in it. I came upon this philosophy after the death of my father. I was dealing with long forgotten emotions and stirred up memories, mixed with hints of pending sibling conflict. As an adult in my 40's, a husband and father with an established career and an independent thinker/liver for as long as I can remember, I was struggling with rationalizing my feelings. I was considering cutting my siblings out of my life and doing some reading on the subject. I feel like I have been waiting all my life for this discovery! So many nagging thoughts were given a new, rational perspective that I had been longing for. Maybe it was the desire for validation (I know -- kind of contrary to a confident objectivist) but I felt like I had discovered a methodology in tune with my natural wavelength. I'm a police officer of almost 20 years, who's always had a philosophical mind I guess, and I find myself at odds with the thinking of many of my peers. Anyways, hello. I hope to continue to learn and grow as a man through the lens of objectivism.
