Why do we idolize consumption? We get our anxiety and our excitement from the same part of our brain and surprisingly the same chemical.
I briefly discuss a few chemicals in our brain such as dopamine and how our cultural habitualization of instant gratification is impacting us on a personal level day to day. This involves the speed and amount of positive feedback we receive from friends or peers through social media platforms which serve us fake and highly superficial (not authentic) positive indicators / stimuli to get us addicted to the small “high” that the chemicals released give us when receiving positive feedbackor buying a new Louie Vuitton purse. Either way, we have this constant need for more as a society and that’s what I want to address and hopefully root up and replace with real self confidence which is built up over a long amount of time of reducing the amount of external feedback and staying true to ourselves in most cases.
