needs and wants

Published by at 11:09 pm under Reflection Blog

Ok so I love this concept of voluntary simplicity because I think it really addresses one of the big problems in the developed world. We have more than we need and thus our appreciation for the difference between need and want has diminished. I thought it was particularly insightful of the author to point out that we all really know where our life is overly complicated. In reality all a person NEEDS is food water shelter everything else is a WANT. While there are truly shortages of some items in the world I do think that sometimes people of all ages in the developed world sometimes complain when there’s really nothing to complain about.

One response so far

    I completely agree with you. People definitly want more things in the world today than they actually need. I also agree with you when you said people of all ages sometimes complain when there’s really nothing to complain about.
