    Stoicism is tailored for the “good life.” It doesn’t emphasize abstract, philosophical musings, like many other philosophies that might seem irrelevant to day-to-day life. It doesn’t require an education, a stellar IQ, or wealth to begin following its principles. One of its major thinkers was actually a slave, and another was an emperor. Clearly it’s a philosophy as applicable to those at top as to those at the bottom, to those who’ve known the best of life as to those who’ve known the worst, to the rich as to the poor, to the healthy as to the sick - because there are no true obstacles to bettering ourselves.
