Stoic Question #5

Is being a good person enough to say you have lived a good life, even if that life was filled with adversity?

Yes, it is enough. There will always be events and consequences that fall outside of your control. The notion that we control everything in the world that may impact us is nonsense. If we live a good life but are beset with adversity, that is our fate, but not our fault. Fate is not a reason to declare we have failed to live a good life.
