Addicted to online psychics, spiritual advisors
How do I stop this financially consuming habit of consulting online psychic or spiritual advisors?
I have tried to cancel my accounts, and credit cards, but when I have a bad day, the anxiety gets the better of me. I look online for reassurance that everything will be OK.
I have been going through a nasty divorce for 2 years, and the uncertainty of my future is what drives me to these sites. I am embarrassed to tell any of my friends of my addiction, because I appear like I have my life on a good track.
I need to stop. I have spent thousands of dollars, which I need for my future. Why can’t I stop? How do I trust my own instincts again, and let life happen.
This habit has become compulsive and it’s anxiety based. Because of your divorce and the other uncertainties in your life, you’re temporarily escaping the daily pressures, hoping for a more positive future.
It would be more helpful to spend your money on counseling or coaching to get you past these uncertainties. You’ll also learn to think less negatively, which will lesson your pressures.
This obsession is not only draining you financially, but it’s diminishing your self -esteem and confidence.
Temporarily taking anti-anxiety medication may also be beneficial. Don't be embarrassed about this obsession. Just do what it takes to get the help you need.
All the best to you,
