Pain is Just Weakness Leaving Your Body

A bit of stoic philosophy for you from one of the great stoic philosophers

The chief task in life is simply this: to identify and separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control. Where then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own.


The truth from the mouth of yours truly is – You can’t control what happens, you only control how you respond to what happens
