I believe in the preventative approach to any part of living.
A medicine or good habit to help with any ‘up and down‘.
There is no finite answer, no absolute, but there is modulation and collectivism. There is also individuation.
Simply put we are stuck with our own experience and what we are willing and able to learn.
Suffering is a part of living this life.
Then, as a stoic there is always the option to heed the ‘knock at the door’.
This is an individual decision.
Ethics are complex.
The way of people vary in group and number and the potential can be exhausting to approach an answer.
Even a simple answer for the individual.
As much as loving and caring can bear.
But as one who has suffered many states of mind.
I highly recommend living within ones limits and accept and give help often.
