Wants vs. Needs

If you have to think if you need something, then it isn’t a need. Almost everyday people buy wants. What’s interesting is how we inflate needs and we end up paying much more than we need to for a version of them.

We transform our needs, lie to ourselves really, and turn them into nice to haves, luxuries. We can live half a mile from work in a smaller place for less money, but we don’t. Refusing to downsize we say things like, “I deserve this.” Deserve though, doesn’t really mean anything. You paid for it. You’re getting it. Great, so what? What are you giving up for what you deserve?

Think about your actions, they affect others. By making better decisions, you do your part to make the world a better place and your life easier at the same time.
