Stoicism and How to Reduce Anxiety in Your Day to Day Living
Years ago, I practiced criminal defense law. Early in my career I represented a young teenage client who was charged with eight serious offenses. If convicted he could have gone to prison for several years. My client elected to exercise his right to a jury trial.
