Fear of missing out is a syndrome that extroverts suffer from. On the other other hand, introverts have this fear of being included. I am the latter. My kids ask for my opinion often. I ask question, I encourage them to decide for themselves in matters that they can but they still like to include me. This is a season. I promise I imagine myself in an older age longing to be included, and that may come if they exclude me completely, but it’s a long ways away. There is a sweet spot of inclusion. Family life has provided more than enough inclusion and for that I am grateful.
