No man is free who is not master of himself

No man is free who is not master of himself. Epictetus

We like to think we’re free,

But we don’t even have control over our own actions… We allow our selves to be pulled around like puppets… To our impulses and emotions… The phone buzzes and you immediately check the notifications,

You get an email that you have to reply to straight away,

You react to situations then think… maybe I could of handled that better

We go on diets but let our cravings please us for the short term,

We think we are in control of our lives, but most of the time our animalistic instincts, our cravings, our impulses and other peoples demands are running us,

We are just reacting from one ping to the next, one coffee cup to the next… You want to be free… Master yourself.
