Books & Scarves, hop in the trash!
Some people, after a break up, trash everything – “It comes from my ex”.
But I’m a constructivist, thus I know things are… “things”, the value is not “into” things.
The value of things is conferred.
And by the way, this great shirt is just a great shirt.
Err I won’t trash it.
I keep things I like. A good scarf looks good on me, and it’s warm. Period.
If I have to trash my scarf, it seems to mean : “I’m haunted by the past”, right?
“I loved this scarf, but today I’m terrified by it. Kill kill kill!”
I’m not haunted by “the past into a scarf”. The past is always interesting!
And it’s not into a thing.
If someone offered me a book, I will keep it as a good sign. And read it.
Good things stay good things : I just CAN decide it’s this way.
So I keep good things, in some states of mind :
- This comes from a good moment, that built me.
- I’m not “haunted” by imaginary feelings included in the thing.
- It’s useful and I like it.
- Dramaqueening is for teens.
“My now bf/gf is bothered by my ex’s things”. What about your body, then?
“What if my ex is now my enemy?”. What? Really? OK then. Trash your shirt. This book too. Voilà. Done. And now? Hmm? Feeling better? Any change? Anywhere?
I have some paintings on my wall which were given to me more than 25 years ago (by an ex). I have so many books. Yes : scarves, pens, a lamp, whatever. My mind-house is built on old stories. I love it!
And it’s a windy winter, brrrr…
