How to people have amazon wishlists?
Like, asking for anything from anyone makes me feel uncomfortable, how can people make a whole list of things that they want and throw it up there for the holiday season to let people buy them stuff? This concept is totally beyond me, not in a bad way, just in a ‘that seems so nice but I could never I don’t think’ way
it’s just like a christmas list. “what do you want for christmas?”
You know, I think I have a misunderstanding or discomfort with it because of a deeper level thing. Like, when I was a kid my mother would ask me what I wanted for Christmas, but the answer was supposed to be ‘nothing’ because if it was anything else she’d get pissed off that I was asking for something. My father gets annoyed at me with stuff like this too, if I’m in a bad situation financially and he finds out he gets angry that I didn’t tell him before but I’m incapable of asking many people (especially my family) for help or gifts. I was just raised with a backwards way of thinking I guess
I always have a wishlist, but not just on christmas.
I just put all the stuff in there I’d love to have but never will buy.
And I don’t show it to anyone. So for me it’s just this sad little reminder of things I don’t have.
