So many people think that minimalism is all about depriving yourself from all the good things. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s not.
Minimalism is a tool that gets you past barriers that keep you away from the things that you truly enjoy; It is a liberating lifestyle. Minimalism gets you past self depriving to self fulfillment. It is through minimalism that you get to fully experience the attributes of what you really love. Minimalism makes you focus more on the things that add value to your life at the same time removing things that needlessly steal your attention; elements that do not give you meaning.
One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
We cannot all enjoy the same things. We have different tastes and preferences. One persons definition of minimalism is different from another persons definition of minimalism. But the similarity is that we all look foward to a more free and liberating life. Where we aren’t bound to do things because they are the societal norms, or because the consensus dictates it is preferable.
