Decluttering Your Life & Closet
You need to learn how to select the people you mingle with just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, choose which people are going to be in it. That's the only thing you should be trying to control -- who is going to be in your life.
I don't know about you, but my closet can get pretty messy at times. As time goes on, things end up all over the place, and I accumulate clothes that I don't even wear anymore. The same thing happens to our personal lives with regards to the people we accumulate in our circle of peers. We keep people in our lives simply because we're so used to them being there, without taking into consideration if they're actually adding value to us in the long run.
So starting today, make it a habit to rid your life of people that are not beneficial to you, the same way you would rid your closet of items that are no longer of any use. Like that friend you used to be close to but has since betrayed your trust? She's just like that "leather" bag you purchased a few months ago, which turned out to be not leather at all, but made from synthetic materials. Get rid of them both! And that ex you keep going back to because you have no other options? He's like that pair of Steve Madden sandals that you've had and worn for years. The one whose soles are cracking from being overused, but you can't seem to part with it because it's your favorite pair of gladiators. Well, guess what? It's time to throw them out! Do yourself a favor and purchase a new pair. Try upgrading from a Steve Madden to a Stuart Weitzman. And you know those people in your life that are only there when they need something from you? Cut them out of your life, fast. They're like that pair of Crocs you keep wearing because they're so comfortable. Well, here's a wake-up call for you: Those Crocs look hideous on you! It's time to let them go.
Always remember that quality is better than quantity. After all, a closet that houses only five authentic Chanel bags is better than a closet filled with twenty knockoffs.
