I have to move in 1 week. Which is both a) exciting, because I love the place I am moving to and there are several benefits to the move, b) sad, because I love my current house as well and will miss being in an actual house that feels like home and c) extremely frustrated, because going through my stuff is the most miserable thing ever. I have thought for years that my own personal hell would be packing for a trip that never happens. It makes me hate stuff…all of my stuff.
I think the problem lies in the fact that I am a very idealistic dreamer, but not a very good practical doer. In my ideal world, I would not be so connected to material items, but alas, here I am unable to throw away even useless things.
