We live in a world of convenience.
A world of instant gratification, where everything you want will always be in reach.
Hungry? Delivery apps got you.
Need to get somewhere? Uber.
Want to watch a movie? Netflix.
There’s how our world is now.. instant dopamine hits at your fingertips. It is an addiction, a curse of the modern world. I suppose it is how it is. With mental illness on the rise, as the Stoics would say.
We lack mental toughness.
Now, I don’t equate mental illness = lack of mental toughness.
I’m just saying.. mental toughness is a prevention. Not a cure.
Everything comes so easy now – when it doesn’t, everything seems so impossible to accomplish.
When the world becomes so effortless and easy now, any amount adversity will break you.
Start a hobby that makes you wait.
A hobby that takes a lot of effort to learn.
