Comments on “Light-heartedness”


Playing with lightheartedness

Rufus's picture

I remember reading that some Stoics regard all of their past actions as the result of fate, while considering themselves to have total free will in the present moment. I sometimes switch to this view to deal with defensiveness.
I find that if I’m trying to change my habits, however, taking some level of responsibility is usually more effective.
