Hi everyone, I love collecting. I love collecting Pokemon. However there is one part of collecting which I do not enjoy. I am sometimes "criticized" by others for collecting "too much." I know I shouldn't care and I don't care what other people think and continue collecting, but people assume I am spending too much, or have too many things. I can't state enough that I am fiscally responsible and never break the bank to buy what I really want. I don't even have a very large collection, especially compared to many of you whose massive collections always leave me in awe. So I guess my question is; has this happened to you and what did you do about it? Collecting is one my life's greatest passions so I hate to feel ashamed that I get so much joy from the hobby.
