I’m have a difficult time drawing the line between defending myself when someone insults me and being more stoic I suppose and ignore it. My father use to say over and over again to never let anyone disrespect you or insult you and so my first reaction from an insult is to try and defend myself but after researching stoicism and learning from life experiences that it takes so much energy to respond and to defend everything anyone says to you. If someone could shed some light on this and help me to understand a bit more that would be great.
