Ejercitemos el Estoicismo

 Stoic philosophy

El estoicismo es una corriente filosófica de la antigua Grecia que defiende la armonía entre la naturaleza y las necesidades humanas para el logro de la felicidad y la sabiduría, prescindiendo de las cosas superfluas. El estoicismo es una enseñanza sobre la virtud, la tolerancia y el autocontrol ya que se define como estoico a alguien que permanece tranquilo bajo presión y evita los extremos emocionales. 


We are part of a whole and everything that happens around us works under the principle of cause and effect. Stoic philosophy raises the problem that we tend to seek pleasure in external things that condition and subdue us and, on the contrary, everything we need to be happy is hidden within us. When we complain, we take the responsibility outwards and we always tend to blame instead of recognizing our individual responsibility and our weaknesses, and with this it is only possible to expand the discomfort and promote victimhood.

This philosophy proposes us to discover ourselves and build from within a solid structure to stand upright in the face of life's vicissitudes, overcome irrational fears and develop our strength and courage to fight our way through adversity, make clear decisions and have self-control and control at all times. . It is about improving ourselves in times of difficulty and knowing that inner strength is exercised and comes to light in difficult times.

A Stoic Proposal

AMOR FATI/ AMOR AL DESTINO/ AMOR A LOS HECHOS

Acepta la adversidad como parte de tu camino, prepárate para el peor escenario. Cada vez que tomes una decisión visualiza lo peor que te puede pasar si no sale como tu quisieras, esto no tiene nada que ver con pesimismo, se trata de contemplar todas las posibilidades lo cual nos permite crear un plan de contingencias y estar mejor preparados.

It is having a proactive and expansive attitude, that prior preparation makes the unbearable more bearable since the only thing that cannot be survived is death. We must also respect each one in their processes because pity and compassion do not lead to anything, what we must do is accompany them and inspire them with our example.


"The sufferings do not derive from the events of our life but from our judgment on it"

Epicteto.

Focus on your internal control. Focus your attention only on what is up to you and you can control. Your attitude, your thoughts, your behavior and your words, this is achieved through attention.

"You become what you pay attention to"

Epicteto.   

Treat obstacles with emotional detachment. This is not about getting cold but about turning the problem into a challenge. We tend to see problems as something external that comes to harm us and that makes us victims or prey, but if we see it as a challenge or something that is our individual responsibility, it will allow us to gather our internal and external resources, prepare us better and develop tolerance and tolerance. empathy. It is that resilience that helps us overcome the difficulties that come our way with a stoic posture that keeps us on our feet and does not let our morale and spirit disintegrate.

"There is no one less fortunate than the one whom adversity forgets, because he never has the opportunity to test himself"

Séneca.

MEMENTO MORI/ RECUERDA QUE VAS A MORIR

Esta conciencia de la muerte no es para hundirnos sino para  partir de este análisis, darle un giro positivo a nuestra vida y aprovechar bien el tiempo que es tan valioso, recordar lo que verdaderamente importa que es buscar la simplicidad de las cosas, la risa, el amor y el gozo que la vida nos brinda en cada momento. Es no postergar las cosas, es disfrutar de nuestros seres queridos, es tratarnos con generosidad y respeto, practicar el agradecimiento y dejar un legado. Es hacer que el haber pasado por la vida tenga sentido y valga la pena. 

»That the simple fact that you can cease to exist right now determines what you think, what you say and what you do»
