Why tf did this become so popular?
If I stub my toe, I should be allowed to cry. I don't want to be strong. I want to suffer a lot in this dying world, why all these methods to reduce suffering.

    People need to cope with daily circumstances, and stoicism offers a solution for it. Man needs to be disciplined hard working person to achieve his possible goals. But if he deals with impossible things to solve, he should let them go, think that they're part of the nature or human condition, and not let his emotion rule over him. This can be done gradually by practicing mindfulness, asceticism, rationalism, and reminding oneself that everything is impermanent (including your emotion).

    The goal is not to repress your emotion, but rather to control it to not let it control you.

    Implementing stoicism means being a mature human being -- living according to the law of nature (lex naturae).

    I guess you're not really asking, but the idea isn't that you're not allowed to cry. It's that you shouldn't let your emotion impair your judgement/reason.

    "The will remains steadfast, and the tears flow in vain."

    Stoicism in a nutshell. They preach it to beta males to stop them from causing any disruptions.

      I don't think that's stoicsm... or following any logic.

      The emperor of Rome didn't go, 'oh fiddle those savages up north are resisting my will oh well'. No he said 'frick those guys, let me tell them about the benefits of fine Greek philosophy as their leaders are executed before me while I bang child no. 16 into wifey. I've assessed my emotions, and I feel pretty fricking rad right now'.

        When was any emperor of Rome a staunch stoicist?

    Okay, now I get it. It's the same reason absurdism is popular among the worst type of normies and the spiritually defunct. All of these can be arbitrarily defined, diverged from and then justified (to yourself and others). You become the judge of what is possible and what isn't, how ascetic you have to be before it's too much.
    Might not be what the stoics wrote about, but it is the appeal among a certain type of man. Especially when stripped of traditional outlook on life and religion the stoics had.

    Same reason Buddhism is so popular. It has a veneer of rationality and it's 100% focused on self-improvement and becoming a super cool dude.

    Stoicism was already popular in the West because it's an integral component of Christianity, so its principles are familiar to the people espousing it. The term itself has become popular because it's a secular way to refer to "those principles" (stoicism) without invoking Christianity, which would be taboo in an age where framing Christianity in any sort of positive or useful light is taboo.

    stoicism encourages crying after stubbing your toe and embracing worldly suffering, you haven't read anything stoic if you think it's about minimizing suffering

    Okay, you want to suffer, stoics don't want to suffer. It's that simple
