Letting go has always been one of the hardest things to do. Change is viewed by most people as a loss instead of an opportunity to start something new. Resisting the path to change is to hold on to things that leads to the buildup of clutters in life. Clutters can be tangible and intangible elements in our lives that hold us back from experiencing changes.
A lot of people cling to things (relationships, aspirations, material possessions) that they believe will be useful for them in the future. Clutter is highly associated with the fear of not having enough in case the time of need arrives. It’s the anticipation of not being able to have something when you need it. This mentality teaches people to live less in the present and more in the future that has not arrived yet — and worse, a future that is deemed already to be not “enough”.
Clutter also signifies our inability to let go, most of the time, out of sentiments. The problem with clutter is that we let it consume space in our houses, in our minds, in our hearts, and in our lives just because we think it is of value to us. However, if we keep on holding on to these things, we are building a mountain of objects or emotional baggage that can hinder us from bringing in new experiences in our lives. Whatever these things represent to us from the past, it is essential that we let go of it especially if it is stopping us to live the present.
Understanding that a clutter free life enables us to a lighter and more open view of the “right here right now”. Piling up all the things that we have acquired from the past does not validate our worth as a person. Clutters hinder us to freely enjoy our lives since it occupies physical, mental and emotional spaces.
To let go of clutters, it is essential to understand that nothing is more important than the present. The present is all you have and it definitely deserves more attention and value than the unchangeable past and the unrealized future. Letting go of clutters means letting go of sentiments and fears. This part will take more courage and strength. These representations of clutters are much more important rather than the actual clutters themselves.
