Happiness and freedom

Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principal: some things are within our control, and some things are not.
— Epictetus

It is only after you have faced up to this fundamental rule and learned to distinguish between what you can and can't control that inner tranquility and outer effectiveness becomes possible.

Within our control are our own opinions, aspirations, desires, and the things that repel us. We always have a choice about the contents and character of our inner lives.

Trying to control or to change what we can’t only results in torment.
— Epictetus

If you think you have free rein over things that are naturally beyond your control, or if you attempt to adopt the affairs of others as your own, your pursuits will be thwarted and you will become a frustrated, anxious, and fault-finding person.

Create your own merit

No shame, no blame
