The first step to minimalism is being satisfied with what you already have.

The biggest myth about minimalism is that it only applies to physical things. You can live in a mini apartment and only own 10 things but if you are binge watching youtube videos and are on the internet all day, you are definitely not a minimalist.

For me minimalism means have stuff but in a efficient way, like chargers for example, you have the less amout of cables around your house, or fornitures, you don't need that big and expensive one if you don't have many things to put on them. I think in minimalism in that way for me and my life style, idk if that's correct or don't, i don't care that much because I try to live more lighter.

i feel like there's a desperate need (in some people at least) to define themselves and the things they do. i get these things exist and to a certain extent i also get why they exist, but nonetheless it kinda strikes me as silly. why would one build some sort of orthodoxy around who they are and how they live their life? i suppose these people think they're embracing some kind of cool, oriental sounding life philosophy but in all honesty they're just constructing a whole canon around a preference or a life choice. i mean: you like a tidy, decluttered home? fine. just don't make it an ideology, cause it isn't. some people make personal inclinations look like communism in the ussr. a doctrine. and this is true for minimalists, hipsters, vegans, vegetarians and so on and so forth. i'm like: just chill, live your life the way it suits you best and pursue anything that makes you feel fulfilled at the moment. i know it might seem tempting to align oneself to a doctrine of some kind, but doctrines are a double edge sword: they provide you with a set of rules but they're not so adaptive, therefore there's a chance they can also limit you at times. life changes, and so do people, so i'd rather be adaptive and change with the flow than feeling dragged down by some kind of borderline moral rule i chose sometime in the past. why would you define yourself so thoroughly that that very same definition becomes a cage for yourself?

It doesn't matter how minimalist you are. In the end, you will always have a Macbook! :-) Just kidding! I arrived here at Ph Santos (He is a brazilian filme critic: https://www.youtube.com/user/rapha7000). He was talking about the book "Essentialism" and also quoted a video of yours about it. I know it is a matter of semantics, but I prefer the term "essentialism", because it reminds me more of quality than quantity (this superficial idea that minimalism is about having few or almost nothing). In the end it's all about these questions that bother us. When you read a book on personal development and spend more time thinking about the answers than reading and turning the pages, you are on the right track. And you may need to close the book and think for a day or two.

I consider myself a minimalist even with a closet full of clothes and a library of books I will never get rid of- because I chose them with intention. I got rid of everything that wasnt serving me or the life I wanted to live and what I'm left with serves me. I don't keep a book if I hated it and I don't hold onto any clothes out of guilt or attachment. I keep only the things I love and I consciously consume, so I consider myself a minimalist.

One question I have about minimalism is that if it's wrong to be emotional attached to stuff from the past that we don't need anymore? I have a ton of books that I read when I was younger, and even that I don't read them in years, they are still really meaningful to me. Do you guys this that's a bad habit do have?

The reason why many think have a negative perception of minimalism is because they think it’s the same as being frugal. Which is... very different.

I'm Brazilian but I've been living in Russia for the past 6 years and I try to have the minimum stuff possible here but I cleaned my wardrobe (and made wife do the same, against her will) a few months ago, and I try to keep the minimum possible here because I never know when I'm leaving to another country. Every time I go back home, I clean my bedroom in my parents' house and I always throw many things away but I still cannot get rid of the majority of them. The other problem about getting rid of unnecessary things besides sentimentalism is that I'm always worried about where is my rubbish going to end up? I mean that here in Russia and in Brazil, like most developing countries, there is not really a recycling system so I don't want to bring more trash to the environment.

I'm the cheatiest minimalist ever; about 95% of my books, games, dvds, CDs and records are all in my wardrobe haha. As long as they're all boxed up in some sort of order (which pretty much all of them are, games all in one box, books all together etc) I don't have any desire to outright get rid of anything, but justify it to myself that if I'm going to get something out, something goes in the box to take it's place. In my living room I have a tall standing lamp, sofa, armchair, tv stand with tv, ps4 and switch, a desk for a imac/music stuff and a small dining table. My kitchen cupboards are pretty modestly full as well and there isn't multiple appliances spread over my kitchen worktops at all times (except for the toaster, kettle and microwave). All of this encapsulates the essence of minimalism for me without going completely overboard in my opinion.

I have been muttering in the back of my mind that 'only _____ years....' before I get to start my f*cking independence. I hate how parents keep buying unnecessary things then giving children them, can't they f*cking see that they are directly influencing their child's character by buying crappy junk??? 'If I wanted something, I'll ask for it,' why is that so hard? Love my dad, but he can be an *ss with all the clothes filling my closet. As soon as I have the chance, I'll take the bare minimum and runaway

I think minimalism is also about getting rid of things, because you don't see value in it, and after a while of abstinence, re-buying the thing because you reconsidered that it had value to you. Never judge you for your actions in the past, folks.
