Word of the Day: Wegdoen

An expression meaning “to get rid of”

This expression could have many feelings associated with it. It could easily be a negative but in my experience it tends to be more positive.

In the last year or so I’ve started my own journey into minimalism. This has led to many purges in my life. Be it unhealthy relationships, unhealthy feelings, and superficially, excess stuff.

Stuff that unknowingly was weighing me down. My drive to always buy new things or the drive to accumulate only put me further away from what I truly wanted. This last year of minimizing led me to get rid of my fears and doubts and live my life more in line with my values.

Sometimes wegdoen is a medium for letting go.
