|“The saddest thing about almost all hoarders that I know, is that the stuff they keep and buy so often seems like it is for other people. Your Aunt saved garden and patio furniture for a party that probably never happened, because the furniture was inaccessible, or there would have been no room to have a party due to the filled up places. Hoarders imagine parties they could have, dinners they could host with all the dishes and cooking stuff they collect. In real life though, they are often too shy or antisocial to manage even a small gathering, and even if they could, there’s nowhere to sit. So sad….” by Hope Is The Thing
I received this comment from Linda at Hope Is The Thing. It is profoundly accurate for my Aunt. So touching and accurate.
