The Myth of Stress


Myth is a belief not based on reality. The belief is so strong as to override what some may consider common sense. Unreality becomes transformed into reality. We all have our myths to help us explain what we otherwise cannot. One can laugh at the “ridiculous” myths of others until you find yourself to be an “other”. So what is stress if nothing more than an imagined force? Samoans and other Oceanic cultures don’t even have a word for it.
