We Don't Have a Relationship With These Things

The things we don't use, that are neglected, that we don't care for are clutter. 

Maybe they once enthralled us, or we really wanted to enjoy them, or someone said we would love a particular thing, but we are not enjoying them. 

We don't have a relationship with these things. They stay things and don't become an experience for us. And because they are not an experience, they create a stagnant effect in our lives. 

They lack the vitality that comes with interaction.

It's okay to extract the stagnant things from our lives. It's very much like trimming dead leaves from a house plant. When we do, the healthy parts of the plant benefit.
