5 Things Only Messy People Will Understand

October 3, 2023 at 4:41 PM PST

Messy people and impeccably organized individuals live parallel lives. For those who find comfort in clutter, a mess isn’t a state of disorder but a realm brimming with possibilities. For the lovers of clutter, a mess isn’t a sign of laziness; it’s a narrative of one’s life journey and a source of creativity. Within the chaos, messy people find their rhythm and pulse, allowing them to dance to the beat of their drums.

Here are four things only messy people understand.

Artistic Chaos

Messy individuals often find inspiration in clutter. A stack of books may seem like a disorderly pile to some, but to the owner, it’s a montage of knowledge and ideas. There’s a belief amongst messy people that a bit of disarray can spur creativity and unearth thoughts that a neat environment may not evoke. It’s more than seeing the world in black and white—it’s about seeing it in a myriad of colors splashed beautifully across the canvas of life.

Lost and Found Adventures

Messy people often find joy in finding forgotten items. Their homes are like a treasure trove of things waiting to be rediscovered. Finding a lost item can feel like striking gold.


While it may not seem like it, being messy can save time. Messy people don’t spend hours organizing, which leaves them more time to focus on hobbies, work, or self-care. They know where their belongings are, even if it doesn’t look like it to others.

Comfort Over Perfection

Messy people value comfort over having a picture-perfect home. For them, home is a place to relax and be themselves, not worry about maintaining perfection. They embrace the lived-in look, finding coziness in their cluttered spaces.

Personal Touch

A messy home often feels more personal and lived-in. Every item left out has a story. Every piece of clutter is a snapshot of their life and personality. It’s like a visual diary showcasing their preferences, hobbies, and lifestyle.
