Online Shopping

By Jacqueline Contreras

My closest friend, Lizbeth is the first person to come to mind when I think of someone who has developed a habit with online shopping. There are some negatives with the relationship she has developed with this habit, along with some positives. The bad side to her habit of online shopping is that Lizbeth is almost always purchasing unnecessary items for herself and her younger sister. This is something I have warned her about, to which she responds by telling me– in an attempt to reassure my concerns–  that she can afford it because she is working. Lizbeth’s online shopping has brought on one positive aspect. My friend has suffered with social anxiety for many years, online shopping has eased her concerns of actually going out to shop, putting a temporary break on her panic attacks.
