    Stoicism is cool.

    For anyone interested in learning more on stoicism, [this is a helpful introduction](https://dailystoic.com/what-is-stoicism-a-definition-3-stoic-exercises-to-get-you-started/) (and quite an interesting read). We can't control everything, but we can control our reactions to whatever may come. It's an excellent way to steel yourself for life's misfortunes, while building empathy and defining your own morality.

    This quote sounds great, but it should be noted that it comes from Carrel's book, *Man, the Unknown,* which advocates eugenics and the killing of "defective" humans.

    After finding out earlier I've been cheated on and lied to for a couple months now, seeing this really helped. Thank you.

    Not sure if the quote matches with stoicism exactly. I guess the way I see it is - Choosing how to react to emotional trauma isn’t the same thing as proactively *carving* yourself if that makes sense.
