Level Three. Am I Different?
Level Two. Am I Different?
By Michelle Lloyd.
Full of ideas to think about, issues to include in life and decisions about where one should be and what they should be doing, New One was often first in line to know about what everybody else was doing and he was usually thinking about doing it himself.
When New One thought about it later, he was reminded about how his friends had sometimes chided him about the same worry, and he had to relent that he did have the occasional tendency to fret about his FOMO.
Often there can be an instinct to refuse or resist different. If it is new, it could be daunting or not the same and simply confronting, so it is sometimes easier to push away anything different. Even though it might seem easier, that does not always mean it is better.
If different is declined, then many opportunities for learning and scope for new possibilities could be lost. New One had though about this a lot and the idea coupled with his fear of missing out, meant that he was nearly always challenged about trying to keep to his own ways, while looking totally on trend.
Having provoked thought, New One tied and forlorn decided that one weekend enough was enough. At school, he would no longer chase other appealing modes of favourite this o that but initiate the potential for a lot of positive action himself, by simply doing what sounded the best to him and his own plans. He did not care if it did make him seem different, because that status was only a chance to enhance understanding or even others’ capabilities.
In no longer fearing missing out or doing too much, New One put into place his own different and happy attitude whereby he only did what worked for him, his family and his friends, it enabled a much more laid back and yet fulfilled lifestyle for them all.
