Daily Stoic Entry #82: How Can I Treat My Greedy Vices? How Can I Heal My Sickness?

March 23rd, 2022

Follow along with my personal daily stoic journal, unfiltered, unedited (except for some spelling mistakes).

Morning Reflection:

My greatest sickness and vice keeping me from being who I want to be and could, is my mental image of myself. I keep myself shackled and constrained because of fear and lack of self-worth. But that fear is making me shrink and waste away. The process to heal has already started by looking for and becoming more aware of my flaws, now the trick is to let them go and move forward to aim at something, anything that will set up the dominos to fall in the right way.

Evening Reflection:

Other vices I have are literal. Greed and falling into temptation, thinking that stuff will help me feel happy. it forces me to live in this constricted mindset that I'm not willing to put up with anymore.

Title prompts are taken from The Daily Stoic Journal by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman.
