De-clutter !

Clutter is bad. It fills one's life with misery.
Why to clutter life when it is already filled with enough woes? So I am now taking out time to specifically remove all kinds of mess from different parts of my life. Its tiring being constantly depressed and putting on masks each & every time.

Sometimes one just has to let go. There are things which are just not meant to be and thinking forever about it is just not worth it. Old and useless things have to be discarded to allow new and better things in life. Clutter also takes up space both physical and mental , in the process giving in a lot of negative energy to the already muddled up life. We all have a habit of collecting, keeping and never disposing off things in the name of memories and remembrance. It's a futile thing to do because things happen, and they happen for a reason and accumulating things related to them only adds up to the so called clutter.

A physical clutter can be thrown off but what about the mental clutter which is stagnant and doesn't get disposed off even if one wishes to? Therein lies the challenge, a human dilemma!


P.S- For the time being,I have moderated my comments section, so if by any chance, it takes some time to appear here, kindly bear with me. Cheers!

hmm.. yeah, mental clutter is hard to clear sometimes... mind is tired and feels off ... and we feel down and out when it is cluttered...

good one...

Shruti said...

@karthik- a past with a tinge of negativity can have no charm!!
Seriousness is a way of life , i guess...

Shruti said...

@vishnu- just as receiving is easier than giving, doing is better than undoing.. removing clutter is a far more difficult task than storing them..It's not easy coz 'letting go' some things don't come easily to everyone!!!

Shruti said...

@leo- cleaning up is a daunting process indeed ... thanks for dropping by :)

All my childhood pics got deleted accidentally yesterday from my laptop. I was sad and then a bit happy...coz they included memories of some of the worst phase of my life and ppl.

just that i found it too hard to delete themselves. u r right, decluttering is good to refresh our mental systems. very well written.

Mental clutter is hard to discard off. I think that can be removed only gradually and not with force so give yourself some time. Hope all is well. Take care...

Deidre said...

Mental clutter like physical clutter, I tend to keep for a certain amount of time and then one day for no particular reason I decide to throw it all away. It's funny how that works, eh?

Mads said...

hope its alright now :)
but yeah it happens and well :( it totally sucks...

Shruti said...

@deidre-That’s how it works.. we wake up one fine day n decide to throw all dat trash forever.. I guess it’s a natural mental cleansing process we all go through once in a while !!
