Thought for today:
‘Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control, and some things are not.’

I’ve quote Epictetus before, and I will again.
So much of what he said thousands of years ago lies at the heart of CBT and other related therapies.
Personally, I like REBT, each to their own.
Understanding what we control, influence or have no influence over whatsoever can be useful.
Certainly worrying about those things outside our control hurts us more than anyone or anything, else.
