Watching the show “Hoarders” is a revelation. These are people who over a span of time have secured almost every item they have ever encountered. They have surrounded themselves with these items, stashing them in their bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and anywhere else they can find free space. The extreme cases are so drastic that the subjects sometimes have to tunnel through these items to get from room to room. The piles of old stuff eventually decay and become hotbeds for disease. The shocking part is that even in the midst of all of this, the subjects become downright belligerent if someone suggests that they get rid of any of these items.
While the show is shocking, when we examine our lives, can we find any similarity? Are there old friendships that no longer benefit either party? Do we still have rituals and habits that once meant something but now are purposeless? Do we attend the same church because our parents and grandparents were on the church roll? If we are honest we can find many areas where we are just as bad as the people on that show.
