Is FOMO Ruining Your Life? — MakeItUltra™ Psychology

Check out this blog!!

“…humanity has benefited from being able to sit quietly deep in uninterrupted thought. Currently, the beauty of being able to sit alone in thought and imagination is getting lost by the massive influx of information.”

I really like this article but it is depressing to realize this about most of the people around me. I am becoming more of an oddity. I am the opposite of FOMO (fear of missing out). I am FOMM (fear of missing myself) when I have too much fun on social media (Twitter and FB). Then the name calling starts from men and the index finger shaking from women that I’m not communicating enough like a normal woman and I’m making them uncomfortable. Go away.

I’m a writer and researcher and really enjoy my own company, taking care of myself, and living alone. It’s actually like heaven on earth. I do sit quietly, deep in uninterrupted thought except for the insights that are channeled from the Universe to my mind daily. Every day is different and something new spins up. I don’t get lost in the massive flux of information and today I’m really seeing how little I relate to what motivates most people these days. I’m glad Dr. Perry posted this because now I know I’m not imagining things.

There are two shows I won’t stop watching; The Rachel Maddow show because she is actually intelligent and articulate and nature shows because they ARE reality; the reality of the Earth in all of its glory. It will likely remain when our species has extinguished itself due to climate change.
