In the recent New Era article, Elder Bednar speaks on how we can recognize and overcome fear of missing out, popularly referred to as FOMO. Here is his counsel:
“Much has been said about how ‘fear of missing out’—or FOMO as it is often referred to—can make it difficult for us to appreciate our current circumstances and environments. This is especially true as people tend to share only the best parts of their family lives and careers with us on social media. I invite you to embrace what the Lord has blessed you with and to act in faith.
