Hello throw pillow. We have met before. I drunk-texted your Etsy listing at least twice. Is there a support group for throw pillow addicts? If not, I am currently looking for throw pillow enablers or codependents. The first step is awareness. The second step is finding support for or against your habit. I fancy myself a glass-half-full kind of person so I will start with Support For and then judge myself from there by judging others first, of course.
Everyone has something their addicted to, which occurred to me when I ran into two monks coming out of my favorite thrift store. One said to me "Sorry, you are too late. We bought the whole place out." And I was like "You, too huh. God, is there no hope?" And then I consoled myself, as I often resort to doing, by thinking that the path is to indulge and then let go of the guilt, or just let go of the indulgence all together. I have no idea what actual monks think. I can imagine what they think and it is this: consumerism is just the state of things so accept it (buy it) and let go (to Goodwill).
