Minimized is an adjective that describes something that has become much smaller, and it can refer to physical size or an idea.

If you have an idea you think will make your workplace better, and then your boss tells you it’s a worthless waste of time, you might feel minimized — like you’re completely unimportant and tiny. However, something being minimized is not always a bad thing. For example: if your house is in flames and firefighters get there quickly, they can keep the damage minimized.
