Stoic philosophy has so much to offer HSPs! It is striking how the same problems being addressed in ancient times were the same human problems that we have today. Lack of self-confidence will be a perpetual human issue.
I especially like the exhortations to move out of our minds and actually begin doing something. Overthinking can be quite a limiting factor for HSPs as we become paralyzed in inaction. Being cautious and careful has its utility but so does action and getting things done. We develop self-confidence by doing, not by thinking about doing.
In the topsy turvy world of 2020, we HSPs would do well to listen to the words of Marcus Aurelius and work toward becoming the best possible version of ourselves that is possible.
