This is my story of how I struggle with hoarding. I’ve reached a point in my life where I want to stop these habits and explain how I feel as I clean and sort all of the clutter. I want people to understand how I mentally struggle with separating myself with items so they can understand why people hoard. This will be a blog where you can read my victories and failures as I clean my entire house. The purpose of my journey is changing my mindset of a hoarder to someone who is free of their clutter. My intention is to help other people be empathetic towards their loved ones who hoard and to encourage other hoarders that we can clean up the mess…and be free of the anxiety.
