I like this quote to challenge unhelpful thinking styles that we all have and cannot stop it. Epictetus says people are disturbed not by things, but by the views which they take of them. We can absolutely choose our negative ways of thinking by talking to ourselves in more positive ways. For example, instead of saying I am useless, I can’t do this. You could say I am not sure how to do this but it is an opportunity to learn something new here.
