    Nobody Loves Me

    Have you ever felt this way before? That nobody loves you? If so, you're not alone. I've felt that nobody loves me before, and in fact felt this way during many of my down moments in the past, such as times when I felt neglected or pushed aside. It was only lately that I learned to break out of this thinking pattern, and today I want to share how you can do so too.

    * Times when I was bullied in school [20:29]

    * How I resolved these negative memories [23:41]

    How Social Media Creates a Fear of Missing Out (And What To Do About It)

    How Social Media Creates a Fear of Missing Out (And What To Do About It)

    FOMO — or the fear of missing out — has become a pattern in today's world. We are constantly on our phones, glued to social media feeds and checking what other people are up to. The more updates we see, the more anxious we feel. We see people living this exciting life, achieving this new milestone, doing that exciting activity. We feel like we are missing out, that we are not living a good enough life, and we have a compulsion to keep up.

    So we keep up... buying, keeping up, and absorbing as much information and updates as we can. And this addresses our anxiety... or does it?

    Can you relate? Well, today's episode is just for you. :) In this episode of The Personal Excellence Podcast, I cover



    * What is FOMO [0:29]

    * Signs of FOMO [1:27]

    * 4 reasons why FOMO exists [4:39]

    * 5 strategies to tackle FOMO [15:06]
