Those who are raised as neat freaks, have a mantra that says: “There is a place for everything and everything belongs in its place”. The television remote stays in the same spot, the pillows are strategically placed, and the countertops are void of dishes.
When you share your life with a family, the opposite is true. The new mantra says: “A clean house doesn’t define you; it confines you”.
Embrace the messiness. It comes with the territory and means you’re leading a busy, fulfilling life—not a Stepford existence.
