They say women are natural hoarders and ‘pack rats’ because we like to store things for future use. We often intend to repurpose a used item, so we store it away for safekeeping then promptly forget about it. The moment it is out of sight, it is also out of mind. But inanimate things are not the only things we ‘squirrel away’ as we often do similar things with and to our bodies inadvertently.
A classic example is seen every December when we make New Year’s resolutions, then by mid-February we hiss our teeth and call it quits for another year. Constantly putting off important tasks makes it difficult to get rid of both physical and emotional clutter, but learning to let go is necessary for us to experience growth.
