Millions of Americans buy STUFF they don’t need with money they don’t have. Much of this behavior stems from feelings of entitlement and a product of unresolved anger at someone or something you believe is unfair. Anger can fester into resentment which can be directed at people or institutions that you feel have short changed you. Instead of resolving anger in a healthy way, you convince yourself that their action justifies your doing something that you wouldn’t ordinarily do to feel better.
This is nothing more than a self destructive behavior that only hurts you more. For more insight into why people overspend go to Dave Ramsey’s website www.daveramsey.com
