Suffering from depression or major depressive disorder is nothing to be ashamed of in any way. It would be like being ashamed of having cancer or diabetes. It is something you have, not who you are. Unfortunately, major depressive order is more than just being sad. It affects many aspects of your life, and one of those areas is organization. Looking at the big picture of organizing is overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.
There are many philosophies out there about organizing, including the The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing which I am currently reading. My friend Sarah at Journeys of the Zoo shared this book with me. I am really enjoying it, though I’m not sure I have the stamina to use the entire method. I do love the fact that the author allows you to keep things! She just wants you to feel joy about the things that you have.
