184 - The Truth Never Harmed Anyone Stoic Coffee Break

    • Philosophy

"It’s the truth I’m after, and the truth never harmed anyone. What harms us is to persist in self-deceit and ignorance.” 

– Marcus Aurelius

Deep down, we all harbor insecurities. We feel that we just aren’t as good as we pretend to be, or want to be. Because our ego, our identity, is wrapped up in who we think we are. When something threatens that identity, we can easily get defensive. Our egos try to maintain these boundaries of who we think we are.

This week's episode is about one of the hardest things for us as human to receive - criticism.
