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

Happy Cake day! Light58

I See You. 

The feeling of being watched c o n s t a n t l y. fvnkylemons

The Past.

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

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point).

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
