If we can't say no to any party or any option or if we wish to have everything like people, gadgets, knowledge and trends by our side as we don't want to miss any life opportunity out of it. This means we are facing FOMO.
What is FOMO?
FOMO stands for Fear Of Missing Out, it is the feeling of fear that something important is about to miss if we don't opt for it. In FOMO, we think that we will feel outsiders if we say 'no' to something in a group.
For example, whenever our phone rings we compel ourself to accept it as something important might be on the other side, the more time we take to accept it the more FOMO we will feel.
