Because you never know what will happen. For some people, new things and unknown things are scary. What you got to do when you wake up, is take a moment for yourself and realise that fear is a human and natural thing!
I personally experience negative feelings after waking up, because waking up means coming back to reality. No more dreams, time to face the real world. And in all honesty, the real world is scary. You never know what's going to happen. That's why it's okay to be scared. You just can't let your fear determine what you do with your day.
You're probably waking up feeling scared because you have anxiety. Anxiety impacts how well you sleep at night. If you're waking up worried in the middle of the night about the future, you should consider seeing a therapist about your sleep problems. It would help a lot!
You seem to have a bit of anxiety about life,I perfer listening to some nice calming music on the way to school/work or anywhere else you're headed,takie deep breaths in and out when you are outside,and try to surround yourself with positive vibes.
It is completely normal for anyone to wake up feeling scared or fearful about the future. Anticipation often causes strong feelings of anxiety which can be easily overcome through mindfulness and relaxation techniques. But most importantly, you have to believe in yourself. These feelings of dread are just thoughts and they may or may not be real or true at all. We are all guilty of imagining the worst case scenario. But in the end the only thing that matters is how we overcome these obstacles. So next time you wake up feeling scared or anxious about the day ahead, just pause for a second and think to yourself "I am strong, I can battle these feelings, they are just empty and meaningless thoughts, and I am determined not to let them take over my life and my happiness!"
I've been there. I don't really like the sound of the alarm clock, because it reminds me that I have work/school. Its normal. Just try to think positively and think of something good that might happen :)
This happens to me if I'm nervous about something upcoming, or if I had a nightmare the previous night. It's completely normal, and happpens to the best of us. :)
You can be scared from anxiety, it makes you worry unnecessarily. It makes you worry often about many things.
It is human to worry about the future. You just have to tell yourself that what happens will happen and all you can do is try your best to make your worries not come true.
