Free will and sense of self

Recently I've been struggling with questions about free will. Someone started talking about how we don't actually have free will etc which made me anxious and then I looked up a bunch of theories about it which I KNOW I shouldn't have done, but did anyway. I started freaking out about how we are who we are only because of our experiences, how if I was born somewhere else or to some other person, I would be a completely different person. I don't know why this is freaking me out so much. Does free will exist? Are we only a product of our upbringings and experiences? Agh.

Wouldn't it be extremely and overly extra ridiculous for reality to make humans through predetermined causality to "apparently have" conversations about whether or not free will exists?
