Apparently I’m a minimalist and didn’t know it

Of course, this depends a lot on the definition of ‘minimalism’. I didn’t think of myself as one because I don’t live like an ascetic monk or in a bare white-and-chrome box of an apartment. But lately I wandered into the corner of YouTube full of decluttering and minimalist-lifestyle channels, and according to some of their definitions, I’ve been a minimalist most of my life. Some descriptions that came up include “Living with the minimum you need to be happy, not the minimum you need to survive” and “Have only things that are meaningful to you.”
