    I love this! I work in an office with women who laugh about the fact that they support executives and keep every detail of the executive’s life organized but can somehow never keep their own the same. Can’t wait to share this with them so they start their own weeding (one weed at a time)

    @0b149f465b9b85b0a1c58f4d7d50f964:disqus – 🙂 Oh how we could all use a personal assistant in our own lives!!

    I think this is the best thing I’ve read in AGES. It definitely gave me a boost of encouragement.

    Yay @twitter-19978491:disqus – so glad it gave you a boost of encouragement!

    Thank you for this…..its so frustrating because I’m a grown woman and my father pours his venom out on me about my clutter and makes me feel horrible about myself.

    This a very good way of looking at it.

    Sorry to hear that @7f2404def8eaefc38d287af610720337:disqus. Hopefully this gives you a fresh script to run in your head that helps you tune out the judgement in your father’s tone. Also – whenever I hear that kind of tone in one of my parental units’ voice, I try to remind myself it is coming from a place of “wanting the best for me.” It helps me find a way to hear the words without getting too angry. {Giant HUG}

    Excellent. Truly the best position I’ve read. Thank you all at Buttoned Up for your willingness to tackle these feelings that no one wants to admit they have! You are a blessing to me. 🙂

    And also I think that people sometimes spew their venom on others for things they truly dislike in themselves (but are unwilling or unable to accept/confront). So that’s another perspective about your dad. Does have a lot of clutter/chaos in his life? Could be that you’re an easier target then deaing with his own issues on the subject.
