Is it time to ditch your FOMO?

Do you ever feel like you are missing out on something important in life? Are you scrolling through countless posts on social media wanging on about wild swimming, exotic holidays or exciting events that you can't participate in/are affordable/haven't been invited to? Perhaps you do have a rich and varied life but feel like there is something more you should/could be doing right now. Maybe you compare yourself to others and feel inadequate or dissatisfied. If so, you might be experiencing fear of missing out (FOMO).

FOMO is a common phenomenon that can affect anyone, especially in today’s fast-paced and connected world. It can cause anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, and even depression. But how can you cope with FOMO and live a more fulfilling and authentic life?

One possible answer is person-centred counselling. Person-centred

counselling is an approach that puts you at the centre of your own health and well-being. It means that you are treated as a whole person, not just a diagnosis or a problem. It means that your preferences, values, goals, and needs are respected and supported by your therapist. It means that you are involved in making decisions that help you achieve your potential. It recognises all the cultural and socio-economic factors that can have an impact on your life choices and respects differences and diversities.

Person-centred counselling can help you overcome FOMO by:

Person-centred counselling is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is a flexible and individualized approach that adapts to your unique situation and needs. This is your space to air all those difficult thoughts and feelings; a place where your green eyed monster can be heard with compassion and understanding we all have a shadow side so let's stop pretending that don't experience jealousy, resentment and longing for more than we have.

Remember, FOMO is not a permanent or inevitable state of mind. You can overcome it and live a more authentic and fulfilling life. You are not missing out on anything-honestly. You are creating your own life.
