Im emotional attached to my THINGS
    #4429819 - 07/20/05 08:33 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Help PLEASE HELP! I treat my things as if I were in love with them, If I through away my used shoes I get sad and miss them, If I give away anything that I have had a past with I get sad. This sucks I cant get rid of anything without having feelings for my things!

Hey man, you're eccentric. It's cool. You got character at least, there's worse things than being nostalgic for your old shit. Just don't let your possesions bury you alive like those guys in Brooklyn at the turn of the century.

Well, Buddha would say that attachment leads to suffering... but then again he was just a guy like everyone else. Read something about buddhism if you are really interested but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I believe this stems from a personal fear of change. You have a desire for things to stay the same, new and perfect. Nothing can stay the same forever. All of the cells that once made up your body have died many times and been replaced. Time causes all things to change, from the inanimate to the animate. Learn to accept the change instead of trying cling to the past.

I don't think much of a problem there..its just that you are a very emotional person. There are many people I know who are like you. I don't think you can change yourself in this regard..be happy with the way you are.

I do not consider myself very materialistic but I too find myself attached to simple things that I have been with for a while. I know it may sound childish but if my mom wanted to throw away my baby blankets I do not think I would let her. I don't use them anymore but they just have a big sentimental value to me and I do not have the heart to throw them away.

Enjoy them while you can, because you can't take them with you.

You need to change your attitude towards your possessions. It sounds like your attachment is causing more sadness then the objects are worth.

In my opinion, it's best to look at objects in matter of priority. Maybe you should think about which is your most prized possession to narrow the field. Attachment to a special object is normal for humans.

However, attachment to all objects you possess might be a problem. (depending on who you are)

Say you woke up one night and your house was burning down. I mean, going up in total flames, all your shit slowly burning away.

You have only a few moments to save ONE item.

What would it be?

I used to give all my stuff away. Like I had a stamp collection that I had worked on my whole life, and on a whim I gave it to some guy my sister was friends with who had a son who I thought might like it, because I was going to college and didn't think I'd use it. The guy turned out to be a real creep and I doubt his son ever got the collection. He probably just sold it. There were some really cool stamps in there from some countries that have outright ceased to exist. Like Togo. I have regretted giving them away for the rest of my life. I don't regret my sense of generosity but I do regret it being misplaced.

Then I owned a huge occult library when I was young. Like 70 Crowley books and so much shit, it's mind boggling. Including some really rare books. Then I got into TM and went off to study Indian Philosophy so I wanted to clear my mind of all those things so I sold my entire collection for probably a twentieth of what they were worth. I regretted that later too.

I learned the hard way to invest your attachments. You're attached for a reason. If you don't want to part with your shit then save it somewhere.

On the other hand, like they say, if the hand is full one cannot pick something else up. If the cup is full it cannot hold any more liquid. You get the idea. If you need to make space then just make space and don't regret it later. I mean, I might have regretted giving things to people who didn't live up, but that's life isn't it? Nobody ever quite lives up, including oneself?

I guess I'm rambling.

I would grab my PS2, unless I happened to have a big bag of mushrooms or weed... Nothing in my room really has any type of sentimental value. I was sad when my discman that got me through the last tough couple years of highschool broke though.
