FOMO is not just wondering what other people think of your experiences and choices that you post on social media.
FOMO forms when you begin to compare yourself and your experiences to others and start to actually become scared that you are missing out on something.
The emotion at the root of FOMO is fear. Fear is an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat.
For some, FOMO actually becomes very serious and contributes to anxiety and depression. If you are experiencing depression and/or anxiety, seek professional help.
So get out there and start living your life, and while you’re at it, practice some JOMO.
FOMO is a form of social anxiety — a compulsive concern that one might miss an opportunity or satisfying event, often aroused by posts seen on social media websites.
An envious definition: wishing you had what another person has, which can be a possession, an experience, etc.
One way is to swop FOMO for JOMO, the “joy of missing out.”
More and more, people are realizing that true joy that can come from not caring what other people are doing, not feeling envious and not being afraid that they’re missing out on anything.
