I was watching TLC's Hoarding tonight. I understand all the dynamics of hoarding but the woman on tonight's show is very pathetic. She chooses to be a victim in all areas of her life. She even blamed her children for not helping clean the house (since they won't help I won't clean anything or throw my trash away). She has an excuse for everything. She was using her hoarding to hold he back from what she really wanted in life. I couldn't help but to think about how we can all be like this sometimes, but maybe not to the extent of the woman in this episode. Do you make excuses for not exercising (I don't have time, as I watch my favorite tv show for an hour) or not eating healthy (I have had a bad day, I deserve this donut)? Are you making excuses that keep you from getting what you want? Maybe instead of making excuses for why you can't do something, try finding reasons why you can. Looking at things this way can really change the outcome. Give it a try!
