I have a friend who has a friend who is too embarrassed to call me. How do I explain that most people feel the same way before they make the call? I want to tell her in person that our partnership is what will make this time different. I want to help her see that she is not alone and that her things will be of benefit to others.

If you think decluttering is hard, you are right! It’s as hard as you think it is which is why the word “compassionate” is in my business name. But so are the words “delight” and “green”

I may not be able to convince her but maybe these folks can. More than a few have felt the exact same way before picking up the phone. At some point they realized that embarrassment — or even shame — no longer served them and it was time to break free of the story and connect: declutter2delight@gmail.com
