How stupid am I?

I’m sitting here, looking at my brand new, silly fast, beautiful new computer. And I have a knot in my stomach. I should be feeling relieved that I have a machine that not only works, but works much faster than the one it replaces. It’s a joy to use.

There’s a nagging voice in the back of my head that’s saying “you should have stuck it out with the old machine. You caved in when you could have made do, saved some money, and put less crap into the environment”.

Why do we do this to ourselves?
