At what point do you realize you are sickly addicted to something??
Happens to me when I start losing sleep over it.
And you wouldn’t believe what is it this time!
Well, it’s in the title..Online window shopping!
I’m sure there’s a better word for it which I’m not aware of.
Life was okay, I was achieving my little daily goals until I started looking into notifications screaming deals/promotions/sales.
First you look at things you need.
Then you look at things you wanted
Simultaneously you are browsing stuff that’s on limited time sale.
Then you start thinking..maybe I wanted this but I didn’t know I wanted. Like a secret wish of my mind.
Or maybe any friend or family wants it..
And you are looking at stuff that’s looking good but nobody wants.
It’s like you have fallen into a bottomless well and you are just going deeper and deeper in slow motion.
A point comes you are just browsing category after category, promotion after promotion.
Now I’m borderline miser, so I didn’t shop much.
But it messed with my head, life and TIME!!
I don’t even remember when this start it was amazon prime sale I guess, there was no looking back after that.
Oh, how did I forget comparing reviews and prices? Because that is a small square on the time wasted.
I couldn’t sleep for last 3 nights even on melatonin (which was working well before) as my stupid head couldn’t stop thinking, “if you sleep you will miss a promotion”.
It’s an addiction I’m tried to pep-talk myself out of it.
“No, you don’t need and want more stuff”
“You have everything”
“You have no space left to even keep a needle”
“You aren’t rich”
“Remember you hate shopping?”
“You have wasted bajillion hours on it
“You have at least half a million more important things to do!”
Pray I am out of it before I stop sleeping completely and turn into a broke hopeless zombie.
