#Emotions #Stoic_Philosophy

What upsets people is not things themselves but their judgements about the things.

Our emotions are a combination of two elements; an affective movement within the body and a judgement.

Suffering arises when we attach judgement to these affective movements that are beyond our control.

For Example; to love some one is within your control,

The judgement that this love should be returned and should be so forever is not.
