We have been convinced by big corporations that we are not enough as we are. We have been fooled into believing that shopping is what we need to experience joy and fulfillment.
Just like a starving dog eats from anywhere it can find food, we emotionally starving human beings buy anything we find in front of us, regardless of whether it can satisfy our emotional needs or not.
So we keep on shopping, day in and day out — and the more we shop, the more we want to shop. We’re like drug addicts who need a drug dose to feel satisfied, but soon after we need one more, at an even higher dose — and so on and so forth.
But in the same way dope can’t satisfy drug addicts, compulsive buying cannot satisfy shopping addicts.
Shopping, exactly like drugs, provides only a temporary high, which very quickly dissolves and disappears, leaving us disappointed and emotional thirsty.
