My girlfriend often tells me that I should pamper myself more. I am very stingy when it comes to buying things for myself, but I’m more than happy to shower her with gifts, I’m pretty sure it infuriates her in a way. I’m not a particularly happy person when it comes to possessions, I’m very much in love with my rituals. I enjoy having a KFC with my girlfriend and a couple of beers whilst watching a film, but I will make sure that my clothes endure the test of time no matter what it takes!
I do envy certain people a lot. They have the ability to be filled with happiness at the thought of being pampered, I am particularly jealous of this! My girlfriend absolutely loves getting her hair and makeup done and buying dresses and new things and that’s absolutely fantastic. I appreciate that she encourages me to buy new things a lot because she’s convinced it’ll make me happier, which I regret to inform is not quite the case for me.
Pampering yourself is important to a point, no matter if you’re employed or look after the children or someone else maybe – giving yourself time purely devoted to yourself is paramount. I should stress, pampering yourself in my mind could be a devotion of time as well as a devotion of money. Whether you buy yourself a new dress or shirt, or go to the hairdresser or barber and treat yourself to a relaxing hair wash and a close shave, I can guarantee you deserve it.
I should really take my own advice on this one, and I will continue to acknowledge that I need to take it but sadly I am just this way inclined for now – I hope things change, most definitely.
