Hording Myth #4: It holds so many memories
Yes, there are things that hold memories for us. But memories are truly held in our hearts, not our stuff.
This is a difficult one for me. I sold a set of dishes and remembered as they sold that they were my first set, straight out of college. They’d meant nothing to me… until they sold. Then suddenly I teared up and thought, “No, wait!!!” It was hard to override that reaction. But I don’t miss the dishes, and I still have the memories.
