I’ve been reading a lot about Stoicism lately, after I was told I need to learn the concept. “Learn”. I say that with quotations because, like you, I’m finding myself stuck in a constant flux of noise about self-help that’s just a generic blanket of quotes telling me to be passive. I’m not a passive person — I lead and I lead hard. But when I’m crashing (like I have been lately), I turn to others’ writings to help me find my way. Unfortunately, that’s been a whole lot of modern-Stoicism that’s potentially not even a glimmer of what it once was.
