As I prepare to move in a few weeks I’ve been going through drawers and boxes and things trying to consolidate what’s going where. Junk pile or keep for the most part. While doing this I came across some old pictures from about ten years ago…from a different life.
Pictures of a previous relationship.
I’ve simply forgotten that they’ve been buried amongst other things and I haven’t ever taken the proper time to go through everything to find them. Now that I have found them I don’t know what to do with them.
Should I keep them?
Should I throw them away?
It seems wrong I suppose to just toss them out. After all if I hadn’t had that previous life I wouldn’t be in the one I have now. I don’t keep the pictures to hold onto the past I don’t want to know what this other persons life is like now. I simply never bothered to get rid of them.
Do you keep pictures or mementos from your past relationships? How does your current partner feel about that? Should I throw them out or keep them? Which memories are worth saving?
