Do you go to events or festivals because all your friends are going? Do you spend money on unnecessary things because you don’t want serious FOMO?
Have you ever thought about only doing things that you TRULY want to?
I have seen people spend tonnes of money trying to keep up with their friends, and then it gets TOOO much and they find themselves in debt and unhappy! It’s time to stay true to you
So, why do I never get FOMO?
I ENJOY MY OWN COMPANY
I have an extremely social lifestyle… I spend every day chatting with people and interacting. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love it, but sometimes I really enjoy just sitting back and being on my own sometimes – you know? I don’t NEED to be surrounded by my friends 24/7 in order to feel involved. I’ve created a lifestyle which I am genuinely happy with. “But Beckie, it’s so different for you”, no, no it’s not. I created a lifestyle from the ground up which I knew was going to make me happy. I stopped vibing with negativity, I stopped wasting my time with people who get drunk and smoke every weekend. I shut myself away from a fake world and created a new reality for myself. If there is anything I’m passionate about, it is encouraging and forcing the issue that ANYONE CAN create a life that they love if they remain focussed, stay hungry, and STOP FOCUSSING ON EVERYONE ELSE. ONE NIGHT IN WON’T HURT YOU! I’m perfectly happy with my own company and you should be too. My words can sound harsh but it’s only because I really really really care…
I ONLY DO WHAT I WANT TO DO
I have always been one to make my own decisions and do my own thing. I have never been a sheep. I’ve never touched a cigarette or any of that nonsense, even though a lot of my friends did during school, I pushed my mind to work differently. I have parent’s who drink a lot and smoke a lot too, but still, I challenged my mindset and got into the habit of saying no. It didn’t interest me, it’s just never been my thing. Just like wasting money on alcohol and drowning away my days one by one… it’s just not worth it.
I STAY TRUE TO MYSELF
I have extremely high morals, so I will never do something that I don’t feel 100% comfortable with. Even if it’s as simple as going to a festival that I don’t want to be at, or to the extreme of trying drugs etc. that I don’t feel comfortable doing. For example, like I say, I have never EVER smoked a cigarette or touched any type of drug in my life. It just does not appeal to me, and I’m certainly not going to follow the crowd and do something because everyone else is, absolutely not which unfortunately seems so normal these days because without these substances, no one knows what a good time is… Think about it, is that you?
Most will have stopped reading this post ages ago before the tears, before they realised ‘this is me’, before they actually “deeped” what their lifestyle is showing them. Most will have dropped and ran when they felt guilty at the thought of that being them and saved the sorrow. But if you’re still here, CONGRATULATE YOURSELF. You’re looking to make a change. You’re ready to take over. You’re ready to be that person who says ‘you know what, this is who the f#ck I am and I’m not changing for anybody’. WELL DONE YOU. This makes me happy… But if you feel yourself getting serious FOMO, stay off the socials for a bit, try not to let things like that bother you, and carry on doing you! I’ve said it before and I will say it again for the people at the back, social media only shows you the GOOD stuff, so stay off the internet, stop wasting time and start thinking about what you ACTUALLY want.
