It’s so cool to think about the WHY behind stuff. Why do we buy it? Keep it? Store it? Why do we feel overwhelmed by it?
I believe the number one reason why people hold onto possessions is due to fear of lack. This is the fear that we won’t have enough to survive, to subsist, or, worst of all, to be happy. We are afraid that if we get rid of our things, that we won’t have anything.
