Self-Love Journal Prompt: Day 3

And the writing continues!

Quick recap: for me, May of 2020 is all about self-love. I’m really capable of getting down on myself, so I’m trying to be kinder and embrace a more self-focused positive attitude. It’s pretty hard when you’re battling Bipolar 1’s super depressive swings. Each day, I’ll be working from one of the prompts from Tia Harding’s 32 Self-Love Journal Prompts or from The Petite Planner’s 30 Days of Self-Love.

Here’s today’s prompt: “How can you start de-cluttering your life?

Oh boy. My life is nothing but clutter, I feel. I’m a bit hard to let things go.

I should make a list? Of the physical clutter, I guess, and work from there.

I need to clean my office up. I know I haven’t dusted there since we moved in. And I haven’t touched any of my reference books in ages. I have a massive amount of old writings I could digitize, I suppose, rather than keeping it all in file folders. I need to go through my craft supplies. But all of that is manageable.

I’ve already de-cluttered my social life by taking part of the COVID-19 stay at home order. I keep in contact with friends via social media and Skype.

Emotionally I have a lot of clutter to work through in therapy. Stuff I don’t want to unpack right now, because it’s a lot and this is just meant to be a self-love journal prompt.

I’m kind of at my wit’s end with this prompt. Most of what I need to de-clutter is physical stuff. All stuff I can make lists for and handle as I can. I’ll work on that today.
