Pretty much everyone can say they've experienced a fear of missing out on something at some point in their lives.
Indeed, it's no surprise that anyone who tries to sell you on a product or experience will have you believe that you're passing up something that everyone loves if you don't buy into it.
But if someone was actually able to tally up all the things we missed out on, we'd likely find that the list was way bigger than we realized. Because while we can certainly recall times we missed out on something big, it's also true that the most interesting parts of life don't always look like such big deals at first.
I'm not saying that once you get through this list, you'll get some kind of Matrix vision that lets you spot every good time in an instant. But hopefully, you'll get a better sense that things aren't always what they seem.
