Thanks for this....very insightful....one of the things they said was, it's funny how we don't want to just tell people who we are, we need the brands to say it for us....I love all the positive vibes that everyone is sharing and supporting. I relate to almost every single thing y'all been talking about lol
I've been on my journey of downsizing since the pandemic. It gets hard because our whole society is feeding us nonstop messages of not just buy sneakers but buying everything lol. I suffered from materialism for so long, craving that validation from others and thinking every sneaker purchase will make me complete when in reality it made me more and more insecure and distracting me from the important things in life.
I highly recommend the minimalists. I found these guys on YouTube and their journey and messages have really played a significant part of helping me wake up and stop not just buying sneakers but buying materialistic stuff.
This is their podcast https://youtube.com/@TheMinimalistsPodcast
They also have books and a great documentary on Netflix
