In this week’s episode of Tiny Bites, I’m exploring the idea of applying minimalism to our personal relationships.

Sometimes, we just don’t realize how draining and one-sided our relationships can be. So, I’m sharing my questions to ask yourself to find out if your relationships are equal, and if they’re not, how to start creating some boundaries.

    These are such important points, Britt – I wish I had realised the reality of one-sided relationships many years ago! Thanks for sharing. I’ve had a number of one-sided relationships which left me feeling rejected and emotionally exhausted. When it comes to self-worth, I think unreciprocated friendship or love can be so destructive. It’s hard to realise when it’s time to walk away, but afterwards is when you feel how much better it is to have no relationship rather than one that is not based on mutual feelings. I’m all for applying minimalism to personal relationships and am proud to have a few very close relationships rather than lots that barely exist at all. Once again minimalism proves that it has so much to offer beyond the realm of our stuff!

      They can be so destructive! Thanks for sharing, Lisa. Your experience mimics my own for sure. I think a lot of people assume they have to maintain certain relationships, even if they are downright toxic for them. Not so! It’s obviously painful in the beginning to cut those ties. But the benefits in the long-term are more than worth it.

    Hey! I'm Britt. I write about living a tiny, simple, intentional life. Because life doesn't need to be lived big.
