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
FOMO is going to be the bane of the Digital Natives and it's going to be the reason why many of us would seek conformity in a broken system.
