It's my turn

As I see my hands twitch and tremble while cleaning up my desk, I realize that feelings are funny things. 


They trick you into getting attached to stuff as silly, useless and of almost zero aesthetic value, as dried flower petals and torn wrapping papers taking up all of your drawer space. You know that nobody will use them for anything. You know that the next time you'll look at them will be when you decide to clean up your desk again. But you still think countless times before doing away with them.


No one is brave enough to defy feelings at one go. But technology's greatest gift to mankind is the amazing way to store stuff in a couple of bytes, without having it take your drawer space. 






And now, this stuff will have everything to do with memories and feelings and attachment but nothing to do with dilemma.


Feelings trick you too often to even think of beating their score. But at least you can gain more points by tricking them sometimes.


I finally convinced my feelings to let me send a few things to the bin. All I had to do was to trick my feelings into thinking that some space is to be made for better gifts to come ;)

My feelings have been stored over the past 6-7 years in a small drawer..i have everything from bus tickets to random diary entries there..feelings are funny..memories are forever, good or bad..

i doubt i will ever be able to throw some of it..but i have often wondered about the clutter that i am going to have by the time i am in my late twenties even :P ..good for you that you could let it go..i am still trying :|

TurbulentMind, saving memories is so very cute, and you are a lucky girl you can keep them. I really needed to make some space in my closet. I have already started to miss them.

Mayz, you bet

Sometimes these useless pieces ofpaper hold feelings and memories that we are not ready to discard and it does take some bravery to let go.

well written no doubt.but pessimistically. feelings depends on what u think through soul not through mind. whenever u have someone whose things are still in closet[a.k.a. soulmate], he is there in soul too. so positve thinking says that if u had fun with that mate why cant it be revived back again? why not give it try? its always easier to back out but its more interesting to see whether those things are really supposed to be in there or should they be picked out again to have the same utter joy that came when those things were given and may be those feelings too never died. they might have been suppresed under pressure? so never be pessimistic. give life another chance to get those things out to make way for better things.
