Generally, I am more or less self sufficient, with a few wants. I have a short wishlist - get an agenda and buy a few pieces of pearl jewelry. I saw the agenda I want -- LV damier azur small agenda. It is not that costly and I do have the money to buy it. However, I have been postponing the purchase day after day. I know I will want another luxury item after this purchase. Buying the agenda will only give me temporal happiness (of cos, it is useful). The scary part is, I will want another luxury item after a month. This is different from Intlset's 'Sick of Spending...' thread. I'm not sick of spending and buying pretty stuff yet. How I wish I am! Some suggested caring for others, reading, spending time with family members etc are true happiness. This is true but it doesn't replace my desire to buy things for that temporal thrill and happiness. And if I keep postponing the 'want', I get moody and unhappy. Guess I haven't seen the "light". Anyone struggling like me now? ... and anyone used to struggle like me?
