..then this book is for you.
The ancient Stoics observed that some things are in our control and others are not. We cannot control the foul language of people, opinions that oppose our own, and that there will always be a bunch of trolls that intend to trigger us for fun. What happens in our environment isn’t up to us. But what *is* up to us, is the way we handle it. Stoicism plays a major role in this book.
Many choose to spend heaps of time and energy reacting to the mere words of others, which hinders them from pursuing meaningful goals and being at peace in an unruly universe. What a waste! This book explores philosophical ideas backed by personal anecdotes to figure out how we can thrive in a world full of jerks, bullies, and people we simply don’t agree with.
