Have you ever been bored and decided to check social media, only to find out that your best friend is at Disneyland, that one of your classmates is eating delicious pizza at your favorite pizza store, and that one of your soccer teammates is climbing the Eiffel Tower in Paris? Have you ever had that feeling that others are ex-periencing things and enjoying life more than you are? Oh, man! You' re missing out! 36 Researchers call that feeling the fear of missing out or FoMO.
37 It’s so easy today to see what your friends are doing from the social media. Unluckily，we only have so much time in the day and only so much money to spend on food or entertainment. It would be impossi-ble for us to enjoy all the name activities we see others take part in on social media.
Rather than realizing this basic truth，though，we usually let FoMO lead us to compare our lives with those of others on social media. 38 Why? We know all the sides of our lives——both good and bad. But all we see on social media are the picture-perfect moments others share.
39 FoMO makes us check social media more frequently，leading to addiction and a negative cycle that can be hard to break. Researchers have found that social media and FoMO can cause serious negative re-suits, including feeling of depression，loneliness and boredom.
40 Researchers advise that we stop looking to social media for happiness. Instead, we should focus our attention on our real lives，including the people around us and all the things we’re grateful for.
A. Have you ever experienced FoMO?
B. At least that’s what you might think.
C. This certainly leaves us feeling dissatisfied.
D. So how do we break the cycle and avoid FoMO?
E. Over 75% of young people report feeling FoMO from time to time.
F. As famous Theodore Roosevelt said，“Comparison is the thief of joy.
G. If you let FoMO control you，the only thing you’11 really be missing out on is your own life.
