Seneca, the great Stoic philosopher, centuries ago analyzed our tendency to focus on the negative aspects of situations and to worry us excessively. He said: “wild animals run away from the dangers they encounter in their reality and, once they run away, they no longer worry. However, we are tormented by the past and what will come. Our 'blessing' hurts us because memory gives us back the agony of fear, while foresight causes it prematurely. "
