Why It’s Time to Retire Stoicism

Emotions and negative reactions to things that cause distress are actually normal and healthy

Recently, I was walking my dog, Daisy (breed: VERY GOOD GIRL) in my quiet neck of the woods when an unleashed dog appeared out of nowhere and attacked Daisy for what felt like 5 hours. Was I screaming at the top of my lungs? Yes. Very much yes. My Very Good Girl didn’t fight back; I later sent a report to animal control.
