“Stress is fear.”

– Ologies Podcast Hosted by Alie Ward, Fearology Pt. 1 with Mary Poffenroth

The thing that blew mind my about this was not only thinking about what that means personally when I say "I'm stressed," but also what that means on a larger scale. For example, if you live more stressful society I guess that means you live in a more fearful society. That really shifts the conversation when we talk about the rise of stress in "Western" countries.
