Stoicism! A way of life!

By theatdhe | Questions and Thinkings | 15 Dec 2020


Being a stoic means you understand pain and suffer! You don't try to get rid of it, you don't fight it...you just understand that it is a part of your life and you'll be living your whole life with it! Showing or complaining about it won't make you suffer less so there is no profit on doing so, it only worsens the way you feel and how you will be seen.

Some of the greatest minds of stoicism are Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Cicero and so on. The things that they've said at that time are super valid for these days as well!

I.e. It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.

It is something that I suppose it's more valid for these days than back than. Today we live in a society that has free speech and free knowledge access which I think are the main tools to grow and live by the ways one pleases.

I think that the way how social media is presenting life and lifestyles itself it is pretty much what it'll take people's whole life to achieve and then understand that maybe that was not the thing that makes them happy and complete.
In my opinion the power and gravity of extravagant lifestyle advertisment ruined so many lives...
But should advertisers and influencers be blamed or the followers that follow someone elses dream and that way of life?!

That's the question!
