ah, Epictetus. His words are like soothing lotion for the itch which is life (pretty sure I just quoted someone, probably Marcus aurelius or Seneca, not sure).
perfect for anyone who wants be a better human being and live a life which is more &amp;amp;#۳۴;responsible&amp;amp;#۳۴;, so to speak.
Epictetus will teach you how to differentiate between what you can and can&amp;amp;#۳۹;t control and why it matters to have control over them in the first place. Because one cannot be bothered by what does not matter, one cannot get hurt by the unimportant and Epictetus teaches you just what are the only things that matter in life so you can stop caring about the rest and so stop getting hurt by them.
seriously, if living hurts you, just read this book. also check out Marcus Aurelius&amp;amp;#۳۹;s mediations. teaches you how to be a good, decent person.
