Thread: Contendedness

  1. #1

    Default Contendedness

    What makes for it? If you are contented do you worry less or not at all about questions such as the meaning of life or a divine plan? Without first a sense of meaning is it possible to be contented?

    If the cavemen were content, we would still be fighting with sticks and stones.

    True, but there comes a point where contentedness is the best option to avoid a miserable life. Just ask Epicurus, he knew.

    Probably has to do with the degree of difference between expectations/desires and reality.

    Its all really a question(as Epicurus pointed out) of whether or not one can change circumstances that one dislkes or not.
