“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” — Proverbs 24:10
Too often we assume that how we were born is something permanent. We take disadvantages for granted, but we have a choice, we don’t have to accept a bad start in life. We can work on it.
Inner Citadel by Stoics is described as fortress inside of us, where no external adversity can enter. What is important is that we are not born with it. We have to build and reinforce it during our good times to protect us in the bad ones.
