..no one wants sleep paralysis because it's generally pretty damn scary. Sleep paralysis is when your mind wakes before your body. Yes you are paralysed so your body doesn't thrash during dreams, but waking up before it does is scary. Also it's a scary thought that your mind can just flip a switch and you are turned off to control of your body.
