Episode 23: Complaining

I talk about complaining in my most recent Stoic Philosophy podcast episode.

Rather than merely complaining, we should take action to change that which we can and work toward a better quality of life including realistic goals. For that which we cannot change, we can work on acceptance, be more grateful for good parts of life, not exaggerate our difficulties, and not create problems for ourselves.

My Stoic Philosophy series explores the tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers including Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca.

For the Stoics, a main focus is pursuing virtue to attain a well-examined life through practical applications of Philosophy – acting with good character, using reason to form accurate careful judgments about the world, and achieving contentment. Stoic writers focus on many perennial human concerns and urge people to take action applying what they learn to everyday life. Self-improvement is central to Stoic thought – strengthening and improving one’s mindset.
