FOMO: Focus On My Own
October 13, 2017
We're often found comparing our behind the scenes to other people's highlight reels.
We take one snapshot and create a living, breathing person or event around it versus the reality of a person at an ordinary event posed for a perfect picture. We imagine this demigod continues living this charmed life surrounded by top-shelf events and experiences.
In his amazing book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, Mark Manson describes how we’re normalizing the exceptional. When we scroll through our Instagram we see only the most beautiful people, the funniest jokes, the best places to eat in LA. The exceptional comes to be expected because it’s all we see. We can’t just miss out on a party anymore. Due to an exceptionally well shot picture that was captioned #bestnightever– that’s the night we miss.
