I Can't Stop Buying Things.I can't stop buying things. Things like a ton of beauty products-- sunscreens, facewash, body scrub, shampoos, conditioners, different shower gels, nail polish, eye shadows. Or shoes-- I buy 5 pairs at a time, but then I think, "Oh, these would look great with jeans! Ooh, I need a new pair of jeans!" and I go buy a pair. Books-- oh geez, I buy 5, 6, 7 books at a time, as I do records. And cards-- cute cards that are blank inside.
I don't know what's happened to me lately. I've always loved to buy a new pair of shoes here and there, a new outfit, or maybe once a season I'll splurge on a few items. Now, I'm buying, and buying, and buying. I'm grateful I can still afford my new habit, and I know when to cut myself off, but maybe I'm making up for a lack of something. I've never been in need of anything. I feel like I have to acquire everything now, before it's gone. I'm not a hoarder-- I love to replace old stuff with new stuff.
I'm pretty successful in my career. I've had to relocate for work, and I have no one around. Maybe I'm making up for boredom. Maybe I'm missing everything that money can't buy so much, I'm trying to buy myself comfort.
Anybody else feel that way?
