What Do Fear of Missing Out and Fear of Flying Have in Common?

fear of missing outWhat Do Fear of Missing Out and Fear of Flying Have in Common?

Both the fear of missing out and the fear of flying are closely related, but it can be difficult to see their connection at first. But once you look more closely, it becomes clear that they have a lot in common.

The fear of missing out (or FOMO) is the feeling that you’re not wanted or included and that everyone else is having a better time than you. It’s often coupled with symptoms such as jealousy, envy, and depression. FOMO affects people differently and can cause people to feel alone and isolated just thinking about what their friends are doing without them.

Both fears are very similar, this is why

The fear of flying occurs when a person experiences strong anxiety about air travel due to the perceived danger from turbulence, heights, confined spaces, or strangers.

This would make sense because both involve feeling trapped in an environment where the person feels unsafe or out of control. How do these two fears relate? Find out by reading on!

The Fear of Missing Out

The fear of missing out and the fear of flying are related because they both include feelings of isolation, confinement, lack of control, and anxiety.

The fear of missing out is often coupled with jealousy or envy a constant feeling of not being enough and not fitting in. It’s when you feel like you’re not wanted or included and everyone else is having a better time than you. The fear of flying can come from turbulence, heights, confined spaces, or strangers.

This experience can cause panic attacks or trigger phobias in some people. The two fears are linked by the feeling that one is trapped in an environment where they don’t feel safe or in control.

The Connection Between the Two

It may seem difficult to see the connection at first, but when you examine the two fears more closely, they have a lot in common.The fear of missing out is about feeling excluded or alone while the fear of flying is about being trapped in an environment that you feel isn’t safe.

When someone feels FOMO, they may start to feel claustrophobic and anxious. Similarly, people with the fear of flying also experience feelings of claustrophobia and anxiety while feeling trapped on a plane. What’s more is that both fears are rooted in a person’s urge for control or powerlessness.

People who experience FOMO often want to be included and accepted by others; when they don’t get their need for acceptance met, the anxiety intensifies. The opposite of FOMO is living life fully, living the Meraki way.

Likewise, when someone has the fear of flying, it can be because they want to be in control of their surroundings and feel like their safety isn’t guaranteed on a plane. Since both these fears relate to powerlessness and not getting what we want, it’s clear that they’re closely related!

The magic of changeWhat is your level of satisfaction, can you rate it?

With commitment struggles, the exhaustion and frustration can become endless.

I like to help people who struggle with fear of missing out patterns- as part of this, they may sometimes feel that other people manage better than them or get more out. They may also find it hard to be intimate with others or settle down in one place. Running away from relationships (or careers), form one home or country to another, becomes an urge too strong to resist at times for those struggling with ‘I am not enough’ or “I can’t get enough” patterns…

Conclusion

Some of the challenges I help people with include: Low self-esteem and self-confidence, control issues in relationships, problems with commitment, perfectionism and not knowing how to life life with passion and joy!
