Endurable

“Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable … then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.”  - Marcus Aurelius in Meditations

Now. Sometimes stoicism is misunderstood. A quote like this can sound like grin-and-bear it/give yourself an ulcer type of advice. That isn’t true! Marcus Aurelius is showing us how to be honest with ourselves. Don’t fret over things you cannot control.
