It is useless to worry about what the rest of the world thinks of your ideas and life style. For me, spending time worrying about how my neighbors live and what they have is time wasted. Whether they have a house twice as big or half the size, whether it's full of their stuff or empty it shouldn't change the way me and mine choose to live. When other peoples choices don't affect me directly I need to remind myself to stay out of their business to the point where I don't have an opinion even if those choices are self defeating.
"The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace." Gaston Bachelard
