Induction vs Natural Birth

I'm currently at 40 weeks and 5 days, so I'm overdue and my doctor has me scheduled for an induction tonight. I am super nervous because I've had a couple of people tell me that getting induced is worse than a regular natural birth. I didn't even ask for an opinion, they just told me and now I'm scared. I've avoided telling anyone else for this reason. Does anyone know if that's true?
