i have this box. it currently resides in the cupboard under my bed in the back corner. my mind frequently returns to this box and now, i just don't know what to do with it. this box though is special, it is constantly reminding me of my past.
this box contains the part of my life in which clouds were extra fluffy and the grass was always greener. " this box contains two large three ring binders, filled cover to cover with letters, emails and drawings. inside the pockets are half written letters and photographs. next to the binders is a mustard yellow purse filled. it holds a prom corsage, the can of the very first rockstar i ever drank, a very important swiss watch, a turquoise ring hand made just for me, a missionary tag and more photographs of our times together. on top of it all, my favorite hoodie that once belonged to him. written across the top in bold black sharpie, "the ex-boyfriend box".
my question is what do i do with this? i'm at a loss. the letters and photos i can't seem to get rid of just yet. but the other items, particularly ones that used to belong to him i just don't know. i feel like i can't just throw it away but i feel like i can't keep it either. i'm at a loss.
so, help a girl out, what did you do with your ex-boyfriends belongings?
