When you share a home with another person, it can be a source of tension, anxiety and even conflict when your partner isn’t willing or able to declutter his/her stuff.
In this episode, I share three suggestions for what to do when someone else isn’t catching the Purification wave.
Here they are in brief:
- Be sure you to focus on decluttering your own ‘stuff’ before focusing on what another is or isn’t doing. There are many gifts to be received when you center your energy on what you have control over.
- Do your best to communicate with your partner about how his/her unaddressed stuff is impacting you and your home. If open communication is a challenge, it may be helpful to seek counseling or relationship coaching.
- Explore what the presence of your partner’s stuff represents to you in your life, your home, and in the relationship. Even though it isn’t your stuff, it is still showing up in your life experience. Perhaps there is meaning, purpose or value to be gleaned in exploring it through journaling or other means.
At the beginning of the episode, I also share a bit of vulnerability because I’m not 100% satisfied with how I sound in this one! I felt like I was talking fast and my voice was quivering at times… I had to decide whether to let it go or re-record. Obviously, I opted to let it go. 🙂 I hope it isn’t too distracting and that the points I shared are valuable to you.
Until next time, my friend, keep on purifying!
