I think we are on the same page. I don’t necessarily buy the Stoic world-view. Just sharing and writing about it to better understand it.
Now, obviously, the morality question is way, way deeper than what I’m talking about here. It’s something I think about a lot, and I still don’t have a good answer, to be honest. The closest is a Buddist worldview that places suffering at the center. But there are problems with that, too..
