Stoicism is the light at the end of the tunnel
When things become messed up, and my path to success becomes narrow, dusty and dark. I usually convince myself that the light at the end of the tunnel is my stoic being. I am still struggling to respond to the pressures of life in the manner that Seneca would. But sometimes things become overwhelmingly out of control forcing me to act up.
But by the words of Marcus Aurelius, Stoicism helps you to be mindful of yourself. And those are the words that brings out the power in me. Thanks to the wisdom of Marcus Aurelius.
