How to use "Stoical" in context?

If there were a word that described someone who sees the world with a calm, dispassionate gaze, it might be stoical. This adjective derives from a New Testament word meaning "proud and unshakable in the face of hardship." If you are stoical about your life, you are not easily shaken or moved by the travails of the world. You have equipped yourself with a strong, unyielding attitude that can help you get through any difficult situation.

While some people might see a stoical attitude as negative, the truth is that it can be quite beneficial.
