MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Since the dawn of our species, human nature has hardly changed. We are capable of inflicting pain on each other as well as capable of healing. Nowdays, human longing for sympathy, desire to have our suffering recognized and validate, is distorted by digital age. Comparitive validity and urge of broadcasting suffering has made the unlucky event a currency of attention and identification.
Why regard the incident as a piece of bad luck rather than seeing your avoidance of distress as a piece of good luck?
Like the flip of a coin coming up with heads or tails, chance is what happens out there, and is an aspect of the physical universe. Luck, on the other hand, is a perceived value of the ‘chance’ outcome.
It is our subjective reality of a good or bad fortune, imposed over the objective reality of the final result or consequence. The chance event is the same, and people see it as lucky or unlucky.
Stoicism acknowledges the challenges we face and teaches us practical lessons so that we may overcome whatever stands in our way. By taking a practical approach to happiness, we learn how to maintain it for longer periods of time and help others do the same.
