Episode 6: Desire

Drawing upon themes in Seneca’s ‘Letters to a Stoic,’ I discuss negative consequences of desires, vices, and how we can change our mindsets to live more modest content lives. Desires can distract us from our worthwhile goals, compromise our character, harm us, cause great stress, and lead us to be slavish. Real joy can be found in contentment, in reducing our worries and unhealthy desires, which will allow for a more fulfilled life.
