I am a recovering shopaholic. Yes, I am recovering from an addition to shopping. I have used shopping to fill a void in my life: loneliness/isolation. I cannot tell you the last month I went without buying some article of clothing or jewelry. It has been a constant battle with myself believing that this or that one thing would be enough to keep me calm or make me happy, but when you’re hurting, nothing is ever enough.
Those are the reasons I shop excessively. I’d get my 1 to 2 items, and then I would be fine. Temporarily. Something about looking at beautiful clothing, ordering things, and knowing that they are on their way is reassuring. I’ve identified the problem, and I’m working on it. Shopping isn’t a problem until you start using it to fill in the broken pieces.
Thank you lovelies,
You are strong. You are beautiful.
A new post will be up next Wednesday.
