For those of you who don't know, FOMO basically means fear of missing out.
I don't mean it in a way that I'm missing out on what the world has to offer. But the fear of missing out on being with my family and making memories. I really really want to go off to a University but the fear of missing out is what keeps me from going through with it.
I never used to feel ready to leave but part of me feels ready now. Though like I said, the fear of missing out on spending quality time with my family scares me. I'm scared that I'll miss all these opportunities to laugh and be happy with them. I don't mean to sound like a downer and just saying this kills me, but no one is around forever. And that is why I can't get myself to leave. I don't want to leave and miss out on the only time I have left with my family. But I also do want to go out and see what's outside of my home town. I want to experience being on my own and meet new people and just grow as a person through the experiences I'll encounter. But how will I do that if I can't get myself to walk outside of my comfort zone?
So today I ask you for help. How do you deal with 'missing out'? How do you gain the strength to leave the comfort of your own home?
