Let the feelings flow and process them, so you can process the mess in your space.
If you have trouble letting go of stuff and processing feelings about the loss of someone loved, you may find this book very insightful. Dorothy uses her own experiences in life to unveil the grief and the sorrow behind some kinds of clutter and disorganization. Reading this book will teach you how to allow your feelings to flow in a healthy manner ,letting you address that stuff that’s blocking you from having a simple and joyful life. Use her experiences to successfully get things in your control again.
This book is a combination of a personal journey, pragmatic information on organization, and an overview of root causes involved in disorder, disorganization, hoarding, etc.
The personal information is easy to relate to.
The insight into WHY many people end up with unresolved, emotionally painful clutter in their lives is helpful for those who may be self-assessing their situation. But it also may bring understanding and compassion for those who frustrate you with their disorganization, because you can see the pain, grief, and emotional loss or physical loss behind it.
The steps for organizational help which are provided are useful and pragmatic. Even so, it is easy to see that many people will still need a confidant and professional help to deal well with their situation effectively.

I read this book in one sitting. I admire Dorothy's honesty and appreciate her sharing her personal story. Grief does manifest in many forms and people react differently. I personally have been grieving after my daughter's diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes and ensuing emotional issues. My grief manifested in irrational shopping which meant a lot of unnecessary clutter. Grief makes it tough to get up and go. But Dorothy's book provided small steps like writing down three goals. Even I can manage that :). If you've suffered a loss and need motivation to get your life back on track, this book is for you.
