FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out.

Some time earlier this year, Oxford dictionary added the word FOMO, among others, to its dictionary. Now, I see it as the bane of many people's existence in this generation.

We want to belong, so much so that even when we see that we aren't getting commensurate benefits, we still hang-on to the circle of friends, chain of activities, routines, etc which we have gotten accustomed to.

Yes it is said that we shouldn't give-up easily, however knowing when to go tangential is as important as knowing when to continue in a circle.

Happy independence Nigeria.

I thought I should embed my tweet which inspired this post
