Anyone can tell you that I am inherently a mess. Emotionally? Not really. Physically? Oh, yes. I leave stuff in every single room that I enter. I've been like that since I was a wee little child, and my messy tendencies have not gone away. Now, many problems come with that. The first one is that my mess tends to cause some conflict between anybody that I live with. And it's really really difficult to change the habits that you've developed since childhood. The second is that I really want to be a minimalist. What is minimalism?

"A style or technique (as in music, literature, or design) that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity"

No offense to myself, but there's nothing in my room that screams "spareness" or "simplicity". Instead, I've got "chaos" and "clutter". That's where I need Marie Kondo, or someone with the same goals. I straight up don't like getting rid of things. It might be because of how many times our family moved when I was a kid, which may have resulted in a sentimental attachment to everything that I own.

My inability to get rid of things also might stem from my utter laziness. I know that in order to clean, you have to make a mess. I really don't want to make more of a mess so I can organize it all again. Like... let's think about how much energy that takes...and how much energy I don't have for that...

The third reason for not touching my clutter is that at this point it's straight-up overwhelming. I've collected so many items over the last year that I'm overwhelmed to dive into the belly of the beast. At this point, I really want someone else to make the executive decisions for me when it comes to getting rid of stuff. I'm quite indecisive as well, which is not one of my best qualities- especially when it comes to purging.

So, Marie Kondo (or a friend who knows how to de-cutter), I need you.

Sincerely,

A total mess
