From All Corners

From unnecessary to important.

We throw our things away.
What do we throw away?

The things my ex-girlfriend gave to me for Christmas?
I thought it was precious when I was in love with her….
but, when she dumped me, they lost their sentiment.
So, I tossed them.

But then, things that I am casting away, started screaming and yelling at me that they had a beautiful memory. Then I think twice. Is this really not important to me anymore? Or should I keep this memory that is a part of me?

Everyone has very important things.

The main ingredients of being "precious"
is the relationship between the owner and the object.
