“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” –Epictetus, Discourses

The premises of stoicism remind us in our life, some things are beyond our control, and we can’t do anything about them. Yes, there are things that we might be able to control to some extent. Thus, it is very pointless to stress over something that we don’t have any control over. Instead, we should focus on things that are in our control.

Unnecessary worries are simply an obstacle to our happiness. The only way to achieve happiness is to accept and make peace with the uncontrollable things in our lives. Besides, nothing is worth more than our mental peace and happiness.
