The One Thing That Nobody Can Ever Take From You

Many times, it can seem as though the people around us take and take until there is nothing left. However, according to Epictetus, there is at least one thing that no one can ever take from you and that is your invincible will. Your invincible will is what allows you to reason and make choices for yourself. Even though some people think so, you cannot be forced to make a choice that someone else wants you to. This is what makes you you and makes up the biggest part of who we are. So, always remember that your will cannot be taken from you, even when it feels as if you have no choices left to make.
