    This post is life. I speak to my therapist about this on a regular basis. My desire for more money for a bigger house and more holidays and nicer clothes. I’m still waiting on my lottery win. Coming from a dysfunctional family with not enough money… All I dream about now is making enough money for all the things I “need”. I don’t know if that will ever change but I do have more realistic goals set so that I can at least try to find my “enough” and draw the line!

    Great post! The funny thing is I was just 10 minutes ago, without knowing that you had published this post, thinking about how our mum taught us from the get-go, that even if you have money you don’t NEED to buy that Barbie or chocolate bar. Instead keep it for something necessary, because you will need that money sooner or later for sure. Basically this meant that we very rarely got toys or treats if it wasn’t our birthday or Christmas. This tactic taught us from a very young age that we have always had enough.

    But when it comes to feeling like YOU are enough, that’s a bit more complicated. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have dreams, though! As long as you don’t get obsessed over that dream and beat yourself up about it if you don’t achieve it within a timeline that you set for yourself. You should learn to enjoy the journey to achieving that dream rather than concentrate on just the dream itself. Because once you do reach it… I can tell from experience that chances are that you will be left with a certain feeling of emptiness for a long time afterwards.

    I don’t know how to advice anyone to feel that they are enough, but fact is, we are all enough. But I will sure exercise my mum’s example if I some day have kids of my own, because it has worked in my and my brother’s case 🙂 xx

    I loved Sophie’s post and have been pondering it ever since too. Your comment about salary really hit me as well. It’s SO true. Aside from money, a large part of this mindset for me is centered around body image…I spent years striving to be a certain weight and then when I got there, I wanted to be smaller. Then smaller again. It’s never enough – there’s ALWAYS more we can do. I’m really trying to align myself with the feeling of having enough at the moment – appreciating everything in my life and trying to spend less time in the dream world!!

    I love this post! I’ve come from a family that is always ‘poor’ and we are far from it. Nothing is enough and enjoying what you have achieved is difficult but necessary for my mental health.

    This is something I have been actively working on for the last few months. Figuring out what is enough, and how to get more of it. It is a tricky line though because I think as humans we are always looking to expand and evolve. So seeing how I can grow from a state of sufficiency has been a big challenge for me lately. Good luck on your journey with enough.
