  1. Stoicism is characterized by fatalism, and this is the similarity between them. The difference is that fatalism is a worldview that is peculiar to many other things, and stoicism is a specific philosophical school.�

    Fatalism says that everything is predetermined and there is no chance or free choice, i.e. it gives such a picture of the world.�

    Stoicism tells us what a person should do in such a world, how to live with such an awareness that you have no freedom of choice, no random step to the right or left. And in this rigidly predetermined world, stoicism offers a person the only possible freedom – his own Mind, attitude to what is happening. “If you can't change the situation, change your attitude to it” (Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher).
