Why is the urge to purge so fleeting?
Right now I'm in Purge Mode. I'm acutely aware of all the stuff that's either out of place or shouldn't be here in the first place. I feel ruthless. This is good. My house needs ruthless action.
But why don't I feel like this all the time? Or even most of the time? Why do we allow stuff to accumulate to the point where we need to feel ruthless?
I guess I should be grateful that I feel this way even part of the time--and I am! But I'm curious about why the whole process is so cyclic.
