"He who buys what he does not need steals from himself"
He who eats what he does not need steals from himself.
We only hurt ourselves when we go beyond of financial needs, our physical needs. We tell ourselves that we’ll feel better or be happier if we buy what we can’t afford, eat what we don’t need or sleep when we need to get up. But we won’t. The thing we choose – that thing we “buy”, literally or figuratively – that we do not need – when we steal from ourselves – we tighten our shackles.
