What Causes People to Become Hoarders?

Why do Hoarders Hoard?

Causes of Hoarding:

Disposaphobia occurs most often in people who have suffered from traumatic events, which usually results in a difficulty letting things from the past go. These people develop hoarding habits that cause them to collect items for their sentimental value, even when they are broken or serve no other purpose. Then, there are those who simply grew up without having to do chores, and did not develop healthy habits because of that. For these people, even something as simple as washing a dish or putting laundry to wash can become stressful, as it is not something they have learned how to do. This causes garbage and

other clutter to build up without the person feeling motivated to do something about the mess.
