A term glamorized by society to an extent where some people proudly describe themselves as ‘Shopaholic’. Now there is nothing wrong in being proud of your personality or who you are or what you believe in. But this is a form of Neurotic pride. Shopaholic is a serious disorder, it’s compulsive buying disorder. Many people with this disorder meet the criteria for Personality disorder. Such kind of disorder could affect every aspect of a person’s day to day life leading to depression. And a temporary solution to cure decision for a shopaholic, is to go back and shop! This cycle keeps on repeating.
What the world needs, is NOT more books and movies glamorizing the term ‘Shopaholic’, but something that spreads awareness about the mental health.
Support mental health awareness.
