For most of us, theft is against our moral standards. Many of us prefer the satisfaction of working hard to earn something. It doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense to take something that doesn’t belong to you. So why are there so many thieves? What makes a thief steal something?
Mental health professionals think that stealing may be linked to a psychological disorder. It’s possible that stealing helps thieves to feel better if they suffer from depression, or helps to boost their self-esteem. These thieves are labeled as “kleptomaniacs”, which is defined as someone who steals often and it becomes easy to them. It is understood that poverty is a root of stealing, but this theory has been proven wrong by the amount of people who are “well-off” that steal. There are people who can afford the item or don’t even need that item, and they still steal. This can be considered a mental health illness.
While our understanding for why people steal is limited, we can take necessary precautions against thieves targeting our homes.
