You Start To Lose That Fear Of Missing Out
One of the things that keeps us enchained to social media is the dreaded fear of missing out. We keep checking and commenting on Facebook because we just don’t want to miss out on something awesome. We don’t want to be left out.
This is a nightmarish scenario because even when you acknowledge that you want to quit social media, the feeling of FOMO keeps dragging you back.
Admittedly, for the first two or three days after quitting social media, FOMO is strong. But guess what? Like a lot of things, it fades. Which just goes to prove that FOMO in this case was pure illusion designed to trap you. Your attachments to social media weren’t as strong as the feeling tried to make out.
