It's a big secret that some knew about me. But there are probably more people who don't know that little fact than people who do.....until now. And what may surprise you even more is that I've struggled with this for well over 20+ years. At times the compulsion would lie dormant for awhile, only to erupt with full force and heap destruction through my financial life. It's caused me heartache, stress, insomnia, and much much more.
As I was looking for support groups online, I couldn't find one that truly spoke to me, so I thought that I would start one myself. I wanted to create a space where I could share my journey, my successes, and my failures. I took a breath, gathered my courage, and shared my intention on my personal FB page. And then I created my Facebook Page - "Spending Less, Loving More".
What amazed me the most was how many of my friends commented with love, support and encouragement. Not one ridiculed me, criticized me, or rejected me -- as I feared. I also got a lot of "me too!"....confirming that I am not alone with struggling with this addiction. So many deal with this in silence because it just isn't really considered a "legitimate" addiction.
