Season 5; Episode 12 (92) - YUM Chapter 8 - Stoicism For a Better Life Podcast
Why is life so hard? Why must everything be so difficult? Why do I feel like the universe is sometimes conspiring against me...all the time? These are universal questions that transcend all "differences" between us, and the answer is exactly what you think it is. There is no fair...or unfair. Life just is and the universe is thus. We have no say in the matter no matter how upset we are or how loud we yell. Accepting this, is the key to shaking the yolk of the human condition. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/andersonsilver/message
