It made sense to me. It's a long process, one step at a time. Minimalism makes sense to me in a way that nothing else does quite as much. In the beginning I was curious about  "minimalism" - What did it mean? Why was I so attracted to it? I couldn't explain it to myself even if I wanted to, but I was definitely intrigued. And somehow, somewhere in me, I couldn't help but think "it makes sense", even if I didn't know how it did - or why, for that matter. The amount of change I've been through since I came across "minimalism", whether it's emotionally or physically, is absolutely incredible. "Cleanse your space" would I tell myself often. When I would find myself in a situation, where I've lost absolutely all control over it, and couldn't figure out to handle it from there .. "Cleanse your space, remove the unnecessary. Keep it less. Do more instead. Work on yourself." I repeat these words, and it made sense. I felt refreshed afterwards, completely happy from the bottom of my heart. Removing something that shouldn't be there in the first place, getting rid of stuff I don't need, cutting out friends, who weren't really my friends. I cleaned my space, I got rid of it. It shouldn't have been there, and that was the start. That was my start of it. I realized that "more" isn't everything. Having more doesn't lead to happiness. Doing more definitely does. 

MORE TO COME.
