I'm the kind of person who loves to clean and keep everything organized ,but I noticed that some people could care less if their place is clean or not. I feel that we are a product of our environment and I feel full of energy if my house is clean and inviting to others. I noticed that some people who live in dirty houses are either depress or isolated from the world. Do you guys think that my perception is right or not?

Yes you are very right,a nd a clean house brings in positive energys all around you and your house too,and we feel alive and active in a clean house as well. I also wonder as to how people manage to survive in dirty houses. But again it depends from person to person. If someone is happy in their dirty home and it makes them feel they are very much at home, let them be, its their choice. Yes if we do go there, we feel its dirty, but for those who like and live in it, its their happy home, we are no ones to judge i guess. And somehow the people in dirty houses are at home in their house too, they feel strange when they see a clean house!! But for me, a clean happy house, that makes me feel invited and comfortable at all times, is my home sweet home :)

Yes, you are right, I guess it depends on the individual ,but to me a clean house is a reflection of peace and harmony.

I enjoy a clean house too, but sometimes between work and the kids, I would rather not have people "popping" by. LOL I do keep my house clean, although the kids try to thwart my attempts by strewing legos and dinosaurs throughout. My ex step mom was not a very clean person at all. Their house was always dirty and they had 3 dogs and many cats. But she was not depressed nor isolated. She was/is very happy and outgoing, just not very good at housework or cooking, etc. So I don't really think that by just looking at someone's house you can tell whether or not they are depressed. My mother is a very clean almost neurotic person about cleaning. And she is one of the most depressed, isolated and generally nasty people I know.

Well, Most of the people that I had met who don't clean their house are either depress or isolated from the world ,but I guess your experience has been different. Is really up to the individual and whatever makes them happy. In regards to me I love a clean house.

Neither my fiance nor I are very organized people. The house is not a pigsty, but it's not exactly immaculate either. We are happy, and cleaning doesn't take up all of our free time, like it does for other people that we know.

Well, is whatever makes the two of you happy. To tell the truth once a house is clean and organized is easy to keep it clean.
