I am binge watching Hoarders. I have been in the middle of a huge purge in the last weeks. I am far from a hoarder, but seeing the extremes is motivating. I like the things the therapists say about Things being tied to Feelings.
When it comes to Things, I do hold on. As I’ve been slowly emerging from a significant depression, I am starting to feel again. As I am sorting through old familiar Feelings, I have a strong urge to let go of the stuff. Lots of stuff. All the stuff.
I want to simplify. Streamline. I want to prioritize and only keep the beautiful and the useful. I want space for creativity, and emotion, and relationships. I want space for me.
