Finding My Truth and the Stages of My Discovery — Stage One.

Stage 1: Acceptance & Stoicism

  1. Nietzsche’s ‘Amor Fati’ — Love of Fate. In fact, I’m getting a tattoo of this soon.
  2. Seneca’s famous quote on lessons learned from facing adversity, “You have passed through life without an opponent, no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.”
  3. Epictetus’s personal advice to me (in my head of course), “Do not seek for things to happen the way you want them to; rather, wish that what happens happens the way it happens: then you will be happy.”
