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?


The Night Shift.

My job... I work nightshifts. Simony87

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

Existential dread. And a stuffy nose. HenryJonesJunior2

Mostly thinking about embarrassing stuff that happened to me 20 years ago. Lurkist

Me... (is trying to sleep.)

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

The Usual. 

Sadness. Loneliness. Not sure exactly. Ninetax_483

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

Death. 

Anxiety about death. TooDoeNakotae

Came to say this. I'm scared of dying :/ Vroniekins07

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....

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

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
