Misunderstood

Personal Development

Throughout the years I realized the more you become mindful, the more you feel misunderstood by others.
You have to accept the fact that everyone has a different perspective of what is right or wrong and most of us do not even try to understand a person.
Instead of connecting to those that do not understand your depth of mind and be upset with them, the best solution is to move on and find people that resonate with you. Yes, you may lose a lot of friends in this process, but the only thing that is of significance, is to find your purpose in life and build your lifestyle around it.

While your passion may seem irrelevant to others, it will fill your existence with meaning. You do not need anyone’s consent to be yourself. It is the human need of feeling socially accepted that makes one miserable. So it is totally fine, if you feel detached from the world at times. Remember that the right people will always feel driven to your personality and they will adore you for who you are.

The Beginning

Lifestyle, Misc

It was July 2014 when I was standing in front of two wardrobes full of clothes which had to be organized. I was dreading it because I knew it would take me two days to put everything in order. I had so many things, and I felt suffocated. Little did I know that there were books about decluttering/minimalism (I still have not yet read one) and my surrounding was of no help. Pretty much all of my female friends are super materialistic and some next level hoarders. There isn’t much more to expect if you are born in a ‘first’ world country. You make money and spend it on irrelevant goods. No worries about anything, as long as you can get the latest designer bag.

I wanted to get out of that vicious circle. I could not imagine wasting my time cleaning anymore. So I started sorting out my clothes that were brand new. I donated all of them, sold my cds and my books as well. It felt really great to be released from it all. It usually takes me 3 hours to clean. I want to reduce the time to 1 hour. Time is precious,and I definitely want to spend time doing more meaningful things in life than just cleaning.
I have started simplifying things in every aspect of my life. Throughout the next couple of weeks I will explain more and go into details of these changes.

Til next time,
