I’m not talking about cars or houses; I’m talking about things that have cheaper alternatives like the newest piece of tech or designer clothing.
We live in a society where our values and self-worth are based on what we have. We purchase things that we know we shouldn’t spend the money on when there is a cheaper alternative. We do it to flex on others and to make ourselves feel better about ourselves. We are implying that we are wealthy when we are not, and this is insinuating the phenomenon in which we cannot be happy unless we have money.
We break ourselves to get things that we want to impress people we don’t care about.
