Does minimalism actually work?
Minimalism is the new fad in town. Everybody is actively talking about it and writing about why we should all live a minimal, clutter-free life. There are tons of posts out there outlining the advantages of minimalism!
But here’s the deal…
A world which is filled with so many visionaries and artists shouldn’t be told ‘how to live’ their lives.
We are all dreamers and we all want to do amazing things in life. We dream of a life we’ll be leading and all things in it; being told which is the ‘best’ practice seems childish. The lives we have imagined and designed for ourselves might not be minimal and that is okay!
You can live your life in whatever way that works for you. Experiment with different concepts and try different lifestyles; whatever you are comfortable with and enjoy living that way.
Do not let the Internet tell you there is a ‘best way’ to do life!
May be you are one of those people, for whom, minimalism actually does work! That’s good for you but don’t expect everyone to be the same. Some of us don’t have it all together like you but we’re happy and content with life. We don’t need a guide on how to be ourselves, so just let us be! Don’t get me wrong, I am not against Minimalism, I think the concept is great and I admire people who can make do with less than 100 things in their house but I’m just saying I’m not one of them. May be in the future I’ll experiment with minimalism and like it but for now, I like this messy, unorganized, cluttered lifestyle that I’m living.
