For as long as we can remember, people have coveted the luxury and the exclusive – be that wealth or precious stones back before mass production was a twinkle in capitalism’s eye, to the current age of social media where we flaunt our technology, fashion and more, people crave designer branded products. We show them off to our friends, family and followers online as a badge of honor, sometimes even becoming loyal to a specific brand or ecosystem.
You shouldn’t take any of this as criticism. I do it myself, and this is something that I don’t see disappearing from societal norms any time soon, though I do want to highlight that you shouldn’t feel the need to buy (or at least desire) high-end stuff for the sake of it. Just because something could be considered the ‘best’ doesn’t make it the best choice for you .
