Someone has rightly said- “Shopping is cheaper than therapy”. I do believe in this quote. Post birth of my daughter I have started enjoying grocery shopping too, which I used to hate earlier. I used to think that it’s a waste of one’s energy, why bother to go out and dress up when you have got mamma and sister to do this. Your likes and dislikes change drastically when you become a mother. Mine is the same case.
We all have heard about the role of our genes for this love of shopping but we are not discussing that here. Here I want to tell the readers especially the male community that it is our way of pampering ourselves. We get high whenever we shop something which soothes our eyes and makes us look beautiful. No matter what your qualification or status is, post marriage you’re expected to do some household chores for you and your family (as stated by my parents, which ‘now’ I totally believe in). Sometimes there comes a time when you forget yourself and totally immerse yourself in doing things for others and in the end, you realize what are you doing for yourself.. what about the things that you used to enjoy. No, I am not cribbing about anything but want to explain in simple words that there are innumerable things that we women do for our family; this is the one thing that we solely do for ourselves, which gives us immense happiness so let us just do this without teasing and commenting.
So all you lovely ladies out there, do share your shopping love here in the comment section.
PS: My husband is a gentleman, he never interferes in my shopping endeavors. 😀
