Scared of parinirvana

Does the idea of attaining parinirvana scare anyone apart from me? I understand it's supposed to be indiscribable bliss but the idea still scares me. I've heard it described as beyond space and time, formless, and eternal. It is so alien to the form of existance I'm used to (being a human experiencing the passage of time). I think it's the fact that it is eternal and beyond time that scares me the most. Does anyone or did anyone used to feel this way too, or have I misunderstood the idea of parinirvana?
