You’re Not The Only One Thinking It: Hilariously Relatable Tweets About Minimalism

Paring down and living a more minimalist life sounds amazing in theory, but when you’re a «stuff» person—someone who owns a lot of things and tends to form emotional attachments to them—it can be a serious challenge to downsize.

How To Pluck Up, Buckle Down and Peacefully Deal With Your Most Emotionally-Charged Clutter

In general, the process of going through your things and letting go can be difficult, but it becomes even more of a struggle when you’re dealing with grief and trauma in the process. Going through a bad breakup with someone you live with, or dealing with the loss of a loved one, for example, often come with the task of going through things and deciding what to keep (and who gets what) and what to get rid of.
