Ever heard yourself saying any of the following?
“I feel so bogged down”
“I don’t know where to start”
“I feel like I am suffocating”
“I’m so confused”
“I don’t know how it got like this”
“I am overwhelmed”
“It’s hopeless, every time I get rid of it, it comes back”
“I can’t get rid of this it belonged to …”
“I can’t get rid of that, it is still in good shape”
“I can’t get rid of that I paid good money for it”
“But I think I will use it one day”
