People Reveal What Keeps Them Awake At Night

The mind is always weary.

The mind is always racing because life is never truly at peace, well at least until we're dead. And who can have a restful REM when you know true peace will only come with death. Bills, love, work.... Adele's love life, anything and everything can keep our nerves on edge and prevent slumber.

Redditor u/GreenKiteReddit1 wanted to know how many of us can't find peace in the midnight hours by asking.... What keeps you up at night?

My Brain: hey... do you remember that time... when the Taco Bell lady gave you your food... and said "have a good meal" and you replied with "you too!" before driving away and almost crashing your car?

Me: well now I do. leavingtoday54321

Alone. 

The idea that I might really be a loser. I live with my parents, am unemployed and have all of 2 real friends. I'm scared I'm going nowhere. Depression and anxiety suck. LittlestRobotGirl

I'm 19, at 18 I just left college and didn't have amazing grades at all. Average at best. I didn't want to go to University because I didn't enjoy college and did not want to risk money over a crappy 4years. With basic GCSE grades I was able to land a job starting at just under 20K.

Anything is possible. I was exactly in your shoes and was legitimately worried about my future. My anxiety was intense and I cried a few times, though life has a funny way of just sorting itself out. You'll be fine, just keep going! SolitudeNR

Come and knock on my door....

Neighbors.

One likes to rev up his car and do burnouts at 3am and the another has 2 dogs that bark at blades of grass moving in the wind. Ovenbakedgoodness90

Everything. 

when I do something wrong.

When I put off something, I should have taken care of.

When I worry about what I can not control.

If none of those exist, or I drink a lot, I sleep. starfishvodka
