Reject meds yes, embrace stocism no.

Give a shit. Get upset that something unpleasant happened and do something about it.

fully agreed. stoicism might be useful for the bottom soulless 10% to embrace as a way to cope with their inability for spiritual thought, but as a baseline for functional humans with feelings it's pretty sub-par.

“Is your cucumber bitter? Throw it away. Are there briars in your path? Turn aside."

throw it away, care about it, breed sweeter cucumbers.

turn aside that day, care about it, return the next day with shears.

of course, stoicism came from a military campaigner, not a homemaker. perhaps he had no time to breed cucumbers and shear briars.
