Thoughts on living with my mom who is a hoarder 


Recently my family have been throwing my mom’s things . She keep things likes , clothes , bags , books, bottles , zips , containers , newspapers and many more . Her room is surrounded by her prossessions ; bagged in plastics bags . 

We are clearing stuff for my bro wedding . Throwing away things that we keep for every Long but never use. My mom on the other hand , don’t throw things . Everything to her is useful , there will come a time when these things become useful . That’s her thinking . 

Living with my mom , made me realised that we have too many stuffs . We create a lot of waste because we get bored and lost the “feel good” feeling. We always seeking for new things to own in order to chase after our never ending unfulfilling “feel good” feeling . 

Do we really need all these stuff that we own ??

The waste accumulation have increase a lot over the decade because we can now afford a lot of things . After few months we will throw the stuff away or donate away . 

After this event with my mom, it really make me wonder how can I reduce the number of things I own or reduce the number of stuff I buy every month . I am creating a lot of waste . Bags and clothes that I brought few years back I no longer like it anymore .

I just feels that I practically have a lot of things !!!! Therefore , I have been quite consicous when I go shopping . Simplifying my life is what I am trying to learn now . Owning less things . I also realised that stuffs don’t spoil or torn so easily. Whatever we are bored off , are all in good condition . I Guess , I just focus on buying good quality bags and clothes to prevent me from buying a lot of cheap things . 

Just my random thoughts and feelings . Anyway appreciate you read my journal .

Thank you Universe 

Love & Light
