New Delhi: Peer pressure, social media and a host of new age ailments have resulted in the '"ear of missing out" (FOMO). Millennials, boomers and Generation Z are feeling it the most. Each time one says "yes" to something in the fear of feeling left out.
This results in one abandoning their own path by pretending or proclaiming to admire what is currently popular or widely discussed. It's all about courage; courage is what one needs to stay your course and gratitude for your own path to keep one grounded.
Social media can often stem up this pervasive anxiety due to the basic foundational unprocessed belief acted out and the observable behaviors are noticed like "Pleasing others", or "Acting out to be perfect" - these are common drivers from the famous Eric Berne theory of transactional analysis.
