Extreme Stoicism

A new ideal for myself: extreme stoicism. This means to be irrationally stoic. To swallow insults like chewing glass, to harness your anger as energy for personally productive things, and to hold your tongue like a dragon.

It takes a lot more skill to be stoic, than to say what’s really on your mind.

I propose a simple idea: when you’re angry, or feel injustice, wait at least 48 hours before responding.

Anger out of strength, or anger out of weakness?

When a lot of people get angry and heap insults on the other person, it is often our weakness. However if you really do feel you’re in the right, your anger is a virtue. But still to say what’s on your mind, it’s still often weakness.

Because when you say what’s on your mind, it almost never resolves the issue at hand. And injustice is inherent in life.

Also when the doubt, be silent. You don’t always need a response for everyone’s comment.
