I doubt that I shall be happy with or be able to adjust easily to some of the technological advances and other changes which will inevitably occur in the future. For example: I imagine looking upwards and seeing cars racing overhead, I would be really worried one might fall on my head. Jobs, robots taking over our jobs -- hard being displaced by a metallic beetle. Instead of migrating to another country people may decide to float off to Mars. Smart homes may become much too smart, I can see myself forgetting which buttons to press. I think combat gear will be the preferred attire, it will be needed - but I can't say why. Of course, some of us -myself included - may not be around when most of these changes take place.

When I was a teenager of 16. I was also scared of future due to overthinking as i hardly had some good friends. what I can suggest you to keep yourself busy in positive activities and start living in present. you never have seen future. As i said i was also afraid that computer will take away all the jobs from humans, robots will also take away our jobs, aliens will attack us... but see where we are today. I am still alive at age of 40. Enjoy the moment. people waste most of time in thinking 90 % of their time in worrying for things for events which can affect their life just 1%. or have probability of just few % Everyone has some kind of worries but simple solution is to face everything from front.

@Kandae11 Yes alertness is essential. But in case of accessive worries (I was also a victim one time, and wasted lot of my life's time thinking for things where i didnt had any controll) I am telling you, this is best time we are living in. just imagine life 100 years back too difficult it was

A lot of that is already taking place. There are robots doing jobs in all kinds of industries. There are smart houses. However, floating off to Mars might take a while to accomplish, but I think we're getting close to flying cars.

I am excited for the future. Change is good for the world and advancing in the world is amazing! Some of these things will not happen even in the youngest generation's time but some of them can. It is fascinating and being open to it is better than being afraid. even though...Being afraid of the flying cars is totally reasonable. Since we still have to fear of bird droppings in the air. haha!
