My girlfriend and I have been trying to become more minimalist and get rid of things we don’t need. We have cleaned out a bunch of stuff and we felt proud of that fact, but then we remembered there are people starving and dying in other places…. Thinking outside of your own space makes everything seem smaller. Consumerism is an all consuming mindset. We need to break free of this idea we need to have “things” and have excess of everything, no matter how hard it is. The world is large, but we are all connected.
