OCD and Hoarding


OCD compulsions stem from insecurity and fear. With hoarding, feelings of inner insecurity become linked to possessions, owning and having.

The more deeply insecure we feel, the more we collect or hold onto items that just might be useful to us, things we may need in the future:

- Newspapers and magazines may hold that one piece of information that we need
  to protects us.

- Food, clothes and household items help us to live and survive.

Hoarding and owning things may also help to fill emptiness and loneliness felt inside.

However, as the collecting and holding onto things fail to offer real control and security, it becomes more and more involved – until we have to keep or collect virtually everything.
