What Aren’t You Prepared to Walk Away From?

A question we asked the community and the answers we received

Words by Minimalism Life

Every month we ask a single question where we invite answers from the Minimalism Life community. And at the end of each month, we share some of our favourite responses. All responses remain anonymous, but it’s an interesting insight into how this nuanced tool, minimalism, can be life-changing for many people.

In February, we asked, “What aren’t you prepared to walk away from?”

“My maximal husband.”

“My Family . . . my Husband and Children ❤️”

“I am not prepared to walk away from living in a free world; a world of freedom of speech and freedom of opinions. I am not prepared to walk away from a world of kindness, diversity, and creativity.”


“My parents.”

Want to share your own answer? This month we’re asking “If you had all the time in the world, what would you do first?”
