How to heal your spending problem
No matter who you are or where you come from—all of us have a coping mechanism that’s unique to us.
Some people internalize their feelings . . . hold onto them and then release them at a later time. While others hold nothing in and do whatever it takes to get an immediate sense of release and gratification through acting out in whatever way they’ve conditioned for themselves.
We don’t develop a coping style or mechanism overnight. Usually it takes years of conditioning to determine what gives us an escape from our pain or stress.
