Acquiring useless crap

The cycles never end. Never satisfied, never content, always wanting more.  Always wanting something new.

Instead of an apartment we want a house.

We want new clothes.

We want new decorations for our homes.

We want a new car.

We want a new tv.

We want more TV’s because one doesn’t fill our entertainment needs.

We want the newest phone.

We want the latest tech.

We want bigger

We want better

We… Want…. More.

As I write this I can’t help but think of how hypocritical it is.I am a retail salesperson who works off of commission.

I profit from feeding your greed.

With that being said it is probably one of the biggest issues with humanity that is widely understood and accepted as normal.  We all fall into the same endless pit of consumerism.

Everyone understands because everyone feels the same way—>we all want more.

Getting more stuff doesn’t make us happy.

More stuff won’t add any value to our lives.

We justify this idiotic greed by saying things like, “It’s not bad to want nice things.”

“I haven’t bought anything in a while.”

“Treat yo’self.” 😏

I am definitely guilty of this as well, but am working on taming my desire for more worthless junk.
