peanutbutterandjelly Posted May 22, 2010 Share Posted May 22, 2010 It's been 7 months since the break up. I gave my ex back all of his things about 3 weeks after, but my room is filled with boxes and piles of my stuff that reminds me of our former life together. Some of the stuff I'm sure I'll want to keep like books and stuff. I have to admit that I dont even really know whats in a lot of these boxes... theyve just been sitting in my room for the past 7 months. My parents having been yelling me about them since I moved in, but I havn't been able to go through them. After 7 months, their patience is wearing thin and they yell at me all the time for it. I still can't bring myself to go through them. I know this sounds totally pathetic. Almost everyday I tell myself that I'm finally gonna go through everything, but I don't. I tell myself that I will do it in a couple hours, but then its too late in the day so I promise to do it tomorrow.. and the cycle continues. My parents have told me that they would help me, but I dont want their help. I dont want my friends help either. I want to do it alone, but I feel like I can't. I know that most people will probably tell me to suck it up and just go through the damn stuff. That seems to be the most logical thing to do... but I have literally been trying for 7 months. I feel really pathetic posting about this, but I dont know what else to do or how to tackle it. If I could have just gone through them by now, I would have... The thing is, there really isn't all that much stuff. 2 large boxes and a few smaller ones. and a few small piles of random things It would definitely take me less than 4 hours to go through. I think I probably want to throw out most of the things. I think that might be why im having such a hard time. Most of the stuff is just sentimental, stuff i dont need anyway. I feel like im throwing away my old life when i throw away those things. I guess im not ready to throw out that life. Link to comment
