joy of missing out


Also found in: Acronyms.

joy of missing out

The enjoyment of time spent alone, rather than the feeling of compulsively needing to be with one's friends or know what they are doing. The opposite of "fear of missing out" (commonly abbreviated "FOMO"). I rarely go out on the weekends anymore. I've totally embraced the joy of missing out, it seems!
