Have you noticed, a few percent of people hype up a certain task or an item or a deed, to an extent where it spreads and spreads and now, from the mass perspective you either follow the trend or have the fear of missing out?
That’s the game of hype.
People don’t notice whether whatever is hyped is something they needed or wanted… But, if everyone is following it, then why should we miss out seems to become the general consensus.
Well, to be fair, sometimes, the hype is around good things towards which it becomes easier to get the following, usually in case of a cause.
However, more often than not, it isn’t. Thus, calling out the game.
The sooner people realize what they need or want and how they should distinguish that from the hype around everything, the better.
Instead of falling in the traps, it’d become so much easier to be decisive about everything once you know who you are.
