Looking back over my posts for this past year and trying to come up with the most popular post for the Blog Carnival was tricky. How could I just pick one? So many good posts this year lol
It was up to us to interpret the word “best.” It could be based on the number of comments, social media shares, or some other metric, or it could be based on our own feelings about a specific post.
The Top Searches this year according to my blog site were……….
trauma and clutter connection
connection between trauma and clutter
do well trauma and clutter connection
So my most popular post and the one that I decided to choose is………….Getting Help to Declutter When You Have PTSD
Many people I work with talk to me about their past trauma and the losses they have experienced. Having those life experiences has an affect on us and in some cases it can mean having difficulty dealing with the clutter in our lives.
Here are a few ways trauma can affect us:
: having a lot of our treasures around us can be a form of protection and create a feeling of safety and security – ie: our stuff cannot hurt us but relationships could
: trauma and losses in our life can cause us to want to soothe difficult emotions with shopping and accumulating possessions
: our stuff can distract us from feeling our emotions like sadness, anxiety, feeling upset or depression
A Couple of Updates
I have switched over to Convertkit so my blog posts might not look the same as they have and it is definitely a learning curve for me so fingers crossed that it all goes smooth and easy.
