This day in age, many people think that buying a house is a priority. There is not necessarily a right or wrong as it is a decision only you can make.
For me, I rent not only out of choice, but out is necessity. Here are some reasons why it works for me:
My apartment is my home. I love waking up to the train going by. In the summer, the noisy birds wake me up every day at 5 a.m. A natural alarm is always better than being jolted awake by your clock music/alarm. I love how it supports my lifestyle and allows me to participate in what I do, all the volunteer work I can do, because I am not paying house costs.
Renting isn't necessarily a "bad" thing.
... is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it. It is about re-evaluating our pursuits, our habits, and our motivations.
