TDC #30: Cancer and FOMO: Fear of Missing Out Strikes Hard

May 07, 2019

One of the topics that comes up time and again with my cancer clients in the group setting and 1:1 is fear of missing out. Something that a lot of the women I work with talk to me about is their fear that they won’t see their children grow up, or that they will die too young and without having lived the life they were meant to live. I remember feeling exactly this way in the weeks and months after my cancer
diagnosis. It’s a visceral, overwhelming fear. One that physically overtakes you and leaves you breathless and weak.

 

What You’ll Learn From this Episode:

Why there is nothing wrong with being afraid or questioning your own mortality

Why there is a lot of shame associated with putting yourself first, especially for women

How investing in experiences has a much longer lasting effect on your well-being than buying stuff

Three powerful steps to tame your fear of missing out (FOMO)
