Groundless Fears

This blog is different. Instead of posting every day or even weekly, I ONLY post when I have come across something that is of substantial benefit to you. Here’s one that I believe is.

We all have felt the bondage of fear. Some of you may be dealing with it now. Below you will find a few words by the Roman Stoic Philosopher Seneca. I have yet to read anything that addresses fear better. These words were taken from Letter #13: On Groundless Fears.

“There are more things likely to frighten us than to crush us. We suffer more often from imagination than reality.”

“Some things torment us more than they ought, some torment us before they ought and others torment us when they ought not to torment us at all.”

“How often has the expected never come to pass? Oftentimes we are frightened by uncertainties as if they are certain. So look forward to better things.”

Have a great week!
