Too Long; Didn't Read

There are strikingly similar concepts from Buddhism and Stoicism. The Buddhist nonattachment concept and the Stoic dichotomy of control theory are similar. The difference between trying our best and nonattached to results is that we do not let the outcome define us. The only things truly yours are those that are entirely up to you. Everything else is from the universe, and the universe may recall such loans at any number of ways, Massimo Pigliucci says. The framing effect can be employed to see difficulties and misfortunes in a Stoic manner.
