Very good information about cluttering. Thanks. However, I am stuck at your comment about the university girl. Maybe she has no interest in success. Maybe she can see other areas of the living experience, you say she was intelligent. Maybe it is the pressure in society to succeed, and the pressure for competition which puts her into this disorder. You’ll never know. Even psychologists and psychiatrists cannot explain everything. Experts know only what is known so far; not everything. So I think it is best to accept everybody as they are, so that everybody will feel free to evolve and heal themselves. I am sure you channeled her to a psychiatrist, maybe she was in depression, which can have a long period of precipitation. I think people go to help by an expert for a cry of help and an expert’s first job must be to channel people to other professionals, not to stigmatize.
