Anxiety is a desire for what one dreads, a sympathetic antipathy. Anxiety is an alien power which lays hold of the individual, and yet one cannot tear oneself away, nor has a will to do so; for one fears, but what one fears one desires.

Søren Kierkegaard in The Concept of Anxiety

Song: “It’s Only Fear” by Alexi Murdoch
