Spend, Spend, Spend dosen't MEND
I wish emotional spending came with a warning sign, like you see on packets of cigarettes.
Now a professional speaker and author but my spending habits spiralled out of control when I was at the peak of my career as a yoga teacher. Life was perfect NOT! I began to shop to deal with personal pressure, so I could carry on my career as somewhat normal after sudden trauma struck. Just like a smoker starts on a few cigarettes a day, and ends up smoking a packet of twenty, spending to feel better grabbed me in the same way. I wish emotional spending would have come with a health warning, like you see on cigarettes, because the debt and despair was crippling. In the end I had to fold down my much loved yoga classes.
