Daily affirmations for Lions fans

One of the other mods (looking at you @Air2theThrown) was wondering if it would help at all with the tone of the board if we encourage more optimistic posts. IMO, if you’re optimistic at this point, you’re insane. But in the spirit Air suggests, I’m starting a thread of useful thoughts for Lions fans. Expect a lot of stoicism. (Frankly, the stoic school of thought was tailor-made for Lions fans.)

Here’s number one:

“Choose not to be harmed — and you won’t feel harmed. Don’t feel harmed — and you haven’t been.” – Marcus Aurelius
