“What do we covet? That which we see everyday”. (paraphrased)
Fitting for the constant barrage of things I find myself wanting to buy. And why do i want to buy all this stuff? Because other people have certain things (mainly seen on fashion/lifestyle blogs and on instagram- is everyone’s life on instagram perfect?). These people seem to have these amazingly gorgeous and perfect lives, and part of the recipe of why these strangers seem so awesome is because of the clothes they wear and the things in their lives. I find myself wanting to be awesome too, and thinking, “Maybe if I had that same dress I would be awesome too…” Am I the only one who finds themselves thinking this? Please, tell me I’m not the only one… This is such a dangerous thought pattern for me since I recognize it as the same thought process that got me in trouble with debt and over-spending in the past.
Merging Silence of the Lambs and personal finance; it’s what I do folks.
