    self-deprivation

    Does this self-deprivation mean "living poorly yourself""?
    43)Yet my grandpa loved his little home and was content with what he had. Even though the house was small, it didnít feel cramped. As my dad said, ďEveryone was happy and content. The size of the house didnít matter.Ē My grandpa taught me that living a simple life isnít about self-deprivation. Instead, itís about giving yourself the time, freedom, and money to pursue your dreams. In many ways, Iíve modeled my life after that of my grandpa. I learned from (b) him that simplicity isnít about austerity. Itís a revolution in personal growth.

    Re: self-deprivation

    No, it means denying things you want.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: self-deprivation

    Does it mean "deprive your value", downgrading yourself?

    No, that's "self-deprecation".
