Being induced...

I'm 41w today, and we finally got an induction date! 25th June at 10:30AM. I'm extremely nervous about this, I've heard so many horror stories about being induced... EG: 'being induced hurts a lot more than a natural labour does' or 'being induced stressed you and your baby out a lot quicker', and it's really put me off and made me want to avoid induction it I can. I'm hoping my little lady makes an appearance before next Thursday! I am petrified. 
Does anybody have any positive induction stories they could tell me? Just to calm my nerves. I'm a first time mum, so I'm not sure what to expect.
