Anyone have this problem? I have to admit I’ve become somewhat of a shopaholic lately. I don’t know what it is but when I buy a nice bag or new shoes I get some kind of a high. My confidence and self-esteem goes up with those purchases but it only lasts so long until I need another hit. I will turn to shopping when I’m a extremely depressed state. I’ll blow 700 on a random bag just to make myself feel better and for the most part I do. I equate my happiness to things because I don’t have any real relationships in my life. It’s so impulsive I don’t really think about if I really want it nor need it. Luckily I don’t have a credit card so I’m not drowning in debt. I won’t just buy expensive things; I’ll buy useless crap that I don’t need just to have it. For me shopping fills a void in my life or just sometimes out of sheer boredom. Having “things” makes me feel more secure and it’s a nice feeling for a while until I crash and feel an immense amount of guilt :|. It's like I Shop, Therefore I Am.
