#retailtherapy part 2
The shirt and the sunglasses arrived today and I love them! What do you think?
I am going to a big con at the end of the month and decided last night to order some new clothes. My taste tends to be a bit morbid. The theme of the con is tropical paradise... But I found a Hawaiian shirt with skeletons. I'm also getting a shirt with a pineapple skull. I ordered some pants from shein that have skulls and dragons. And I ordered some gothic red sunglasses. I want to make a good first impression. It's all clothes I'll wear often. I'm SO excited.
This cat in the image gives me the face I make when my husband sees me reaching for something to put in the cart and tells me to put it back. I feel like I am so wrong or about to do something that will #hurt me. When things are #Wrong or #IAmStruggling it doesn't feel like I have #power . I feel #powerless .
#shoppingaddiction is real. My mother has it worse than me right now, whereas I have people telling me "No!" And "Put it Back!" Holding me accountable. It still feels hurtful.
I no longer go to stores just to "Look." I cannot go to a store just to "Look around." Especially an issue if I see something and cannot buy it. We are all experiencing some kind of #financial issues. #Medicine is so dang expensive, and that often causes us to fall into a pit. I do not know what to do, but I have been trying things other than talk #Therapy .
I decided to click online "Add to Cart" or "Add to Wishlist." This is common for websites like Amazon or Bath & Body Works. Especially now that the Christmas season is here.. I see things I want to #Buy for other people, or things I want for the #home or for #Myself . It feels #bad .
Have you experienced #shoppingaddiction ?
If so, what do you do?
I need #Advice .
