Mental Health Mondays: FOMO

I couldn’t be more obvious if I tried with what’s been on my mind lately, and I feel like it is something that may be on others’ in relationships as well.

This is one of my guiltiest thoughts because I am insanely in love with my fiance, but there is always that inkling of ‘why give up my freedom’, or ‘is this right for me’, that I can’t get rid of. Or, most bothersome to me lately, ‘why should I have to give up my last name’.

This isn’t me in any way speaking negatively about my relationship, this is me speaking openly about my thoughts on relationships in general.

Mental Health Monday, Meet FOMO, relationship style.

Oh, and a quote from the article that applies to life in general, especially mine, needs to be highlighted before we start: “#6 Social media vs. reality. Social media has magnified the reality of just how much our society seeks approval and attention. But social media is not reality. We constantly seek approval, which we base upon however many likes, comments, and followers we get.”

The grass is always greener on the other side, or so we think. Just because we think something, doesn’t make it true. You may think you’re missing out on something because you’re in a relationship, but that doesn’t mean that you actually are.
