Affirmations have been used for centuries to facilitate positive mindset changes, and are especially useful to assist with the problem of compulsive spending.
If you put a lot of time and energy into buying things, or feel plagued by constant thoughts about spending money, then this may impair your life and the lives of those you love in a significant way.
Shopping addiction is fuelled by negative emotions, and exacerbated by guilt. A person may make a purchase they regret or cannot afford, then the guilt from that fuels the addiction even more.
It’s Not About The Stuff
Of course, this kind of addiction is never actually about the items purchased. Usually a person who over-spends is responding to underlying negative emotions such as of anxiety, stress, depression or grief.
Those emotions can trigger overspending, because the subconscious mind can’t find any other way to offer that self-soothing mechanism.
Shopping is a mindless way to sidestep negative emotions, especially if you’re prone to equating the acquisition of material things with happiness.
