Question of the day

On a scale of 0-10 how influenced are you by FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). 0 = non existent and 10 = 100% all the time. Most of us worry about tomorrow, being liked, having enough, competing with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers. People get anxious and depressed because of constant comparing of oneself with others.

The opposite of FOMO is contentment and peace. Advertising in our capitalistic society fuels FOMO as does politics especially campaigns. The richest person in the world is the person who is happy with enough. How much is FOMO a part of you life? How much is contentment, satisfaction, and peace?

  1. There is a woman I was married to who is what I called "a bottomless pit." Nothing was ever good enough and it was only a matter of time before someone took advantage of her if they weren't doing so already. I finally left her after many, many years. I kept thinking if I only loved her enough she would finally become satiated. It didn't happen. Instead, she became only needier over time. She lives in a hell of her own making and I finally escaped it and feel much better. However, I am very sad that she is so unhappy.
