Compulsive spending is something that everyone suffers from ocassionally, and no one really knows why. Although many would laugh at the idea that spending could be a problem, there are others who have a real problem with impulse spending. It doesn’t matter if some people have one dollar, or one million dollars, they are going to spend it all. These people can drain their bank accounts and ruin their relationships, harming their future, and the future of those around them.
Compulsive spending is a problem created from other problems within a person’s life. People can go on compulsive spending sprees because they’re unhappy about who they are, they want to make believe that they are someone different, by playing dress up. They want their peers to think that money is no problem, when in reality, it may be a big problem. Others use compulsive spending as a perceived way to change their past.
