The Stoic State of Apatheia

The Stoic State of Apatheia

The Stoics had an ideal but misunderstood mental state they were pursuing in life: The state of Apatheia.

Apatheia means being undisturbed by lesser emotions, and when we have taken into account everything that is in our lives, we can let go of some things, even if they seem valuable to others.

Accepting and Letting Go

Accepting and Letting Go

Apatheia is a mental state where we are not letting daily annoyances, circumstances, events, and even our passions affect our inner core being.

We are accepting that losses and bad events will happen, we are able to love and be with our loved ones while they are still around us. The present moment and all its riches are understood once the future loss is also taken into account.

Curiosity

When someone is genuinely curious and asks us careful and compassionate questions, it makes that person positively memorable.

Once there is no malice or evil intent in the questions or any hidden agenda, or ego, then the really curious person starts making connections and meaningful relationships.
