Angst is being towards its potentiality-for-being

Angst makes manifest in Dasein its Being towards its ownmost poten­tiality-for-being – that is. its Being-free for the freedom of choosing itself and taking hold of itself. Angst brings Dasein face to face with its Being­ free for (propensio in… ) the authenticity of its Being, and for this authen­ ticity as a possibility which it always is.

Martin Heidegger in Being in Time
