Do you hold on to things with 'sentimental' values/ childhood belongings?
do you throw away things easily?
Just wondering how many people are willing to get rid of their childhood belongings?
My mom and my dad's side of the family are complete opposites when it comes to 'throwing things away'. My aunts and uncles from my dad's side tend to hold on to many things from their past, they'd rather fill the entire house/basement with things that they will probably never touch again (some from my grandparents and some from other family member that have passed). However, I understand that many of these things have sentimental values and that its difficult for them to let go. I feel the same about things from my childhood/past...but my mom have always taught me to let go of things I won't use anymore because 'new' things need to come in. Sometimes my mom drives me crazy because she'll just throw away/donate things without asking and when I was younger, I used to cry over the things that had a lot of sentimental values because im easily attached to things...but now I realize that its okay to get rid of things if I wont ever use/need it again.
