I tend to want more than I actually need, and have had the ability to indulge in most things as I wish. Cue the classic privileged white girl narrative. It’s the "seduction of capitalism” enraptured by the feeling of wanting more combined with the fear of missing out. I've lived fairly simply in the past and I've shared smaller spaces with lots of different housemates. Transitioning to community living hasn't been difficult for me, but sharing finances in conjunction with a social justice job has made me think deeply about living simply.
