Journey from FOMO to JOMO
Many of us are constantly active on all platforms of social media out of fear of missing out (FOMO).
Fear varies from someone not liking my stories if I don’t like theirs to missing out on continuous update about what’s happening around. Everyone is trying to get recognition and appreciation for clothes and accessories, trips and places visited, events attended and photos clicked. The list goes on and on…
After doing this for a while there comes a phase when suddenly we start feeling empty. This emptiness gets deep and strong despite being surrounded by thousands of friends across the globe.
This is the time to catch the bus for the journey towards joy of missing out (JOMO). This journey is about discovering that you do not miss out even when you are away from social platforms. We must accept this ‘Big Surprise’ happily. The moment we start enjoying JOMO, the feeling of emptiness starts shading off. We start doing things for internal joy and not for showing it off. We discover that we don’t miss on any update or these updates are not relevent at all. We start enjoying the beauty around through the naked eyes than through camera. Suddenly ‘who says what’ does not matter. Spending time on gadgets reduces to a extent that even if the battery goes off we don’t get panic attacks. This is time to use our energy for the things that offer the ‘real happiness and peace of mind’. This bus for the JOMO is waiting for each one of us. Let’s ride it and experience the difference. 🙂
