Do We Deny Ourselves More Often Than We Treat Ourselves?
Nicole Dieker

This is interesting. I think we tend to micromanage the little things, because when we add the little things up, we don’t feel like as satisfied as we think we should be with an amount that large. On little pleasures, I definitely deny myself. When I do “treat” myself, it’s not such a little treat, but more of a splurge. Like plane tickets or a heavily discounted (but still pricey) dress. I also find that with the tiny things I desire, the impulse to purchase fades if I sit on it for a while. Kind of like craving cheese fries.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
