A Minimalist - Keeping Up With The Jones

Has everyone heard the line " keeping up with the Jones ? " If not I will explain what it means .

Keeping up with the Jones means that you are not going to let others buy better things than you have , so if the neighbor gets a new car so will you , to keep up .

I cannot understand why people want to stay in debt . I say pay your house off , its yours . Pay your car off , its yours . You are no longer a slave to pay for this stuff . Same with credit cards , get rid of them and feel the freedom . 

Over the years I have had people do me this way . A keeping up with the Jones  , My stalker was one . I got a red car , she did . Tony got a silver truck he did . I colored my hair blond , she did . I bought a gray hoodie , she did . The list was endless . I am glad I moved but I have had her follow m lately a couple of times.

I have no idea why people want to be this way but be confident in who you are and what you have . No need to follow others dreams , make your own .
