I don’t think I am a stoic but I read some Stoic wisdom. I read the book by Marcus Aurelius and the one by Seneca. I also read one by Ryan Holiday.
Stoicism is pretty hardcore. I don’t think I am hardcore. Then again I have put up with bipolar for 20 years. Some people are afraid of mice, some are afraid of elephants.
I feel like the popularity of stoic and buddhist texts these days is because of how grim reality has become. Reality requires a perspective shift and I think thats what its all about perspective shift.
