M Ever wondered why we get lost in things we do, like a favorite book or movie?
There can be numerous reasons but the most common are probably:
I’ve been reading Marie Kondo’s “The life-changing magic of tidying up” who believes that people live in clutter despite their efforts, it seems, for two main reasons:
- People are never taught how to actually tidy up; and
- People have difficulty with tidying because they are using it to avoid what is actually making them anxious or insecure, such as the need to study for a test, instead you clean up your room and feel temporary relief once it is cleaned but never actually study. The cleaning aids in distraction, temporary joy, and is a crisis mode, of sorts, to avoid what is actually causing anxiety.
I admit that I am barely into the book and that is what I have ascertained so far from the Author. I find it interesting that she thinks we live in clutter as a way to avoid anxiety.
Are we all really hoarders waiting to happen?
What do you think?
