That little sentence „ feeling down go shopping“ as I just read; is supposed to make us feel happier, well maybe it does at the moment we spend that cash on something that we really didn’t need and the store owner loves us for that… Great for the economy, but do I really feel better now????
I’m really not too sure about that because you need to have enough small change in your wallet to enjoy that shopping experience or else it won’t be as happy as they say…… A person is sad or upset and think to themselves “wow, I’m going shopping now to cheer myself up” …. Everything is fine until that moment comes…. Open the wallet and see only small change. I don’t feel so cheered-up now, maybe even worse because I have no money to spend. Or I check my bank account and it shows me that I seem to be lacking the amount of shopping dollars necessary … So I stay home and try to make the best of the situation. I am not happy as they say I should be because I can’t go shopping!!!!
Why must one always go shopping when feeling down isn’t there other ways to make one’s self feel better without spending cash or am I missing something here????
What happened to the days of calling up or visiting a friend and chatting with them about the problem when you feel down??? Or has that disappeared too.. We have no more friends so; there one is alone in the jungle of a shopping mall hoping to find happiness by spending some money on something that will bring a moment in their life where they aren’t thinking about their problem…. Those are such sad thoughts because it is only for a moment and that doesn’t solve the problem it just seems to cloud it over for a moment and nothing else….
Shopping isn’t what it used to be either. When I sit here and think back to my younger days… going shopping was an event and you didn’t go all the time either. It was planned and you knew how much money you could spend and after it was gone that was it, and we were happy and we didn’t use shopping as a means to solve problems or unhappiness.
Oh, there perils of shopping and what will be the next idea about what to spend money on when you are feeling down…. I’m sitting here patiently waiting to read what it will be????
