Finding Peace in Cleanliness

Dealing with obsessive compulsive cleaning at 58 years old has been quite a challenge. It’s exhausting to constantly feel the need to clean and organize everything around me. But I’ve been seeking support and learning coping strategies to help me find a sense of peace in cleanliness. I’ve found that taking small steps, setting realistic goals, and seeking professional help has been beneficial for me. I’ve also discovered the importance of self-compassion and accepting that it’s okay to not have everything perfectly clean all the time. It’s a work in progress, but I’m hopeful that I can find a healthier balance and break free from the chains of obsessive cleaning. I hope others who struggle with similar challenges can find hope and support as well.
