How to Banish Guilty Stuff from your home
A lot of stuff in our lives and homes make us feel guilty.
Here are three reasons we keep things out of guilt:
- Someone we love gave it to us
- We feel guilty that we haven’t used it
- We spent good money on it
Let’s talk about how to banish this guilty stuff out of our lives because we don’t want to keep stuff around that makes us feel bad.
The first one is when someone you love gave you the stuff. You can still love the person that gave you the item and not keep the item. The gift is in the giving! Thank the person at the time of receiving it and now, you can let it go.
The second is guilt about not using the items. That’s a good reason to find someone who will use the item. I used to own a theremin until I realized I was only holding onto it for the pick up lines and jokes. After I realized that, I sold it to a musician who would actually use it. Sometimes, knowing where the item is going and that it will be used, makes it easier for us to let go.
Finally, our hard earned money was spent on the items. Know that the money is already spent! If you have the time and energy to try to sell the stuff, go ahead, but sometimes it’s best to cut your losses and just get it out.
You are enough and you have enough, let go of that guilty stuff!
