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?

Love is all you need. 

The realization that nobody outside my family really loves me. SUOMENMOMO

Well I don't love you (I don't know you) but I hope you find someone who does. JaCrispy316

Happy Dread! 

Existential dread. And a stuffy nose. HenryJonesJunior2

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?

Sadness. Loneliness. Not sure exactly. Ninetax_483

We all die lonely, don't worry about it (: TheBritishKoala99

Death.

Try some psychedelics, that will give you new perspective. SwerveInvesting

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....

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 put off something, I should have taken care of.

When I worry about what I can not control.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.
