Another borrowing from everyoneâ€™s favorite stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius.
Marcusâ€™ basic view is, youâ€™re part of Nature, so if something natural happens, why be upset about it? Everything is how it should be, even if you donâ€™t like it.
And even if you donâ€™t like it, thatâ€™s just a feeling. And feelings arenâ€™t real, or at least, theyâ€™re pretty fleeting.
Marcus has been called a really good philosopher for very stressful situations. Not unlike certain form of Buddhismâ€¦ theyâ€™re quite similar to each other.
The thing is, itâ€™s easy to pretend that you like change. Whatâ€™s far harder is actually doing it. Our brains like to shut down once they get comfortable, and they like being comfortable more than just about anything else. Yet another one of Natureâ€™s little tricks.
Marcus Aurelius reminds that weâ€™re not at war with our nature. Itâ€™s just that Nature is a paradox, existence is a bit of a bizarre mystery. And even the atoms in our bodies feel itâ€¦
