I sometimes get the impression that Stoicism is often taken as, and practiced as if it were, a way to finally control everything, including our feelings.
Yet this is quite incorrect. Stoicism is not about becoming able to control everything.
It is about finally starting to begin to acknowledge that we don’t and can’t, and to start to begin to learn, to know, in and through experience of all sorts, what it is to accept this and live from it and in it.
