FOMO: Fear of Missing Out. The modern disease.
As we try to move forward, expand ourselves, grow our skills, there’s a tendency to fear what we’re losing.
Getting married. Not getting married. Taking a new job. All things that will trigger this feeling of “what am I giving up?” The triggers are endless.
Fear is the driving force behind this pull. Resistance transforms it into emotion. Emotion clouds judgement and prevents happiness.
Fear can be mitigated by focusing on what you’re gaining.
