Daily Stoic Entry #59: What Would Happen If I Took A Second To Cool Down?
February 28th 2022
Follow along with my personal daily stoic journal, unfiltered, unedited (except for some spelling mistakes).
Considering what's happening around the world and specifically in Ukraine and Russia, I feel like some people should really fucking think about this question. No good will come from any of this. Cease fire and disengage, cool down for an hour, a day, anything at this point.
It's difficult to work on myself considering what's happening in Europe at large at the moment. I find that I want to cool down but I'm angry, anxious, and mostly heartbroken by what's happening. In these extreme circumstances, how can one cool down? Yet that's what exactly needs to happen in order for the situation to improve by any margin.
