Sometimes it can be hard to throw away our possessions, even when we aren't using them anymore. You might see a sweater in your closet that you never wear, but you can't bring yourself to get rid of it in case you want to wear it again sometime in the future. This usually isn't a problem, but sometimes the inability to let go becomes a compulsion and a tendency to hoard. If you or a loved one has an issue with hoarding, 7 Cups offers online therapy to help.

What Causes Hoarding?

There is not a single known cause of hoarding. People will often hoard because they believe an item will be useful or of value sometime in the future or it may hold sentimental value. Some of the risk factors for hoarding can include depression,experiencing a traumatic event, and having a relative who is a hoarder.

The Dangers of Hoarding

Typically, when a hoarder gets to a certain point, they start living in conditions that can affect their physical health. It's hard to keep a home clean and sanitary with the large amount of clutter hoarders typically have. Despite these difficulties there are much healthier ways to deal with stress and other associated challenges. Therapy can also help a hoarder realize the source of the trauma or condition that is causing this behavior, which helps them get better.
