An interesting little something happened today, just writing about it to sort it out.
So recently my handphone cover spoilt , the back part of it is just hanging on by a piece of rubber lol. I mean normally I would use my phone without worries.
My girlfriend told me to buy a new one, but I sorta showed a refusal to do it, stating its expensive (Not really) and how my phone cover is technically still usable and it would be a waste of money.
She nagged at me to buy a new one or she’s gonna buy one for me, I don’t want her to spend unnecessarily, what’s more I know what I want. She gave me 2 weeks to buy my own.
Anyway, it led down the discussion that I don’t love myself enough. That I needed to love myself before I loved others. Maybe it’s true.
I’m just thinking back to how in the past I always told people I don’t have wants, I don’t really want anything. That’s a whole other can of worms.
I think somewhere along the way I mixed my wants with my needs, or maybe it’s a difference in opinions, everyone has different needs and wants but somehow I reduced my needs to very little.
I had many incidents in my life where I use things that are very close to breaking without preparing a spare cause I want to save money.
Am I crazy? Or is it perhaps a sign of lack of self love, it’s not like I’m financially strapped or anything. I just feel extremely uncomfortable throwing away things that can still be used and buying new ones.
I’m still keeping a bag which zipper broke thinking I can fix it. Shoes with holes in it and broken soles. My laptop is being held together by those big paper clips cuz the plastic broke.
I’m so curious right now what could be the cause of my strange behaviour right now. Maybe I’m a natural hoarder😁
