I know they say that the best things in life aren’t “things”, but… what if material things make you happy? What if you gasp over some wedges or a high-waisted skirt? Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s important to love your family and friends more than fashion, and I do! But is it so bad to love “things”?

It’s not too bad:). It’s bad when you get obsessed with… things and they become more important than everybody else, even than you! Don’t worry – this is a stage, it will pass:))

hahaha… I love my closet too. It is normal. They are things you pick b/c you love them. It is better when they are not harming the environment though… so try to stick to buying thrifted, vintage, or eco fashions!

Honestly, I do love quite a few material items. Of course, I love my favorite pair of shoes, my favorite dress, etc. but I find myself more attached to pieces that have sentimental value (like jewelry passed down from my mom).

…and I love my bed. That’s material, right? Haha :)

unless you approach life from a buddhist perspective…no, loving materials is absolutely natural and utterly human. For better or for worse, it makes our world go round…i suppose if we didn’t desire inanimate objects, communism would work, then everyone would be communist, and who seriously wants to be communist? lol

I feel as long as you recognize that while things make you happy, they aren’t going to fill any voids or true emotional issues you’re golden. Things make you happy in a temporary sense.

I love my clothes and they make me happy also. I think when people say that material things don’t bring you happiness they mean the things your not passionate about. I mean every girl here has a passion for clothes and fashion. Clothes are our hobbies and jobs so it really does bring us happiness because it’s calling in life.

A few weeks ago I saw a sign that said “Love people and use things, not love things and use people.” I do agree with this, but I don’t think that loving things is completely bad, I love a lot of my clothes/shoes etc haha! It’s bad when you become completely obsessed with things and can’t live without them, or if you prefer your things over relationships with other people, stuff like that :P Completely agree with what @Kallenie said!!

I think it would be ok to love you things,just as long as you don’t become obsessed!! There wea a line in a movie I once saw.The situation was a bit different, but the principle is the same. If you love your possesions will they love you back !!!!!!!!!

Of course not. It’s better to love… than to hate. Let the love consume you, darling. :D

I LOVE pjs and will never give them up… even though they’re pretty old… Oh, and I also still have my teddy bears from when I was only 7! And i’m already 22. :D

it’s not bad , you don’t hate, so it’s not a negative feeling. it makes u happy and smile , and you are not hurting anybody.. so why it should be bad? don’t worry we all love things..but we also love people. it’s just natural.
