I have a Starbucks addiction for a reason you wouldn’t think. I worked for the company for 3 years and 3 months and walked out when I couldn’t take the stress of management and home life. Since then I have been dying to get back into the company. Not only would I go sit in a Starbucks for hours on end and drink like 10 cups of coffee I would crazily apply to every Starbucks with in a 10 mile radius. The reason I am like this is due to an abusive relationship that I use to be in when I first started with the company. Starbucks was my refuge. This place was where I could hide, have a sense of control of my life, be myself, and vent to friends. This was more of my home then home was. So it turns out that I psychologically associate Starbucks as safety, crazy I know. Currently I have found ways to get over this by diving into other business ventures, like my writing and found effective coping methods without having to go talk to a shrink.
