How can you remain Stoic when everyone around you has lost their head?
Caleb and Michael discuss the problem of Non-Stoics. Often others can’t handle the stress of life and want to share Stoic techniques with them – when is that the right play?
Luckily, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius gave for this very issue.At the end of this conversation, we summarize eight strategies you can use to deal with non-Stoic people.
Check out StoaLetter.com if you haven’t already, the Wednesday letter will summarize each strategy.
