Whether gathering dust or placed neatly under your pillow, if you are like most people, at some point you have held on to mementos from past relationships. Most often, these mementos serve as a reminder of the good times you shared with that special person, but how long is long enough? If it’s all just a memory, do you really need a reminder?

Although ridding yourself of letters, jewelry, pictures, or whatever it might be from past relationships may prove difficult, it can be an important step  to moving forward in your love life. For many, holding on to past reminders is a physical indication of the attachment you may still have toward your ex. So, chances are if you are holding on to the items from an ex, you are probably holding on to them in other ways as well.

However, hanging on to some mementos is not always problematic, are you really supposed to throw away your favourite pair of slippers because they are from your ex? So, what is ok to hold on to and what is not? What do you think, where do you draw the line? It might be “no big deal (NBD)” to hang on to the wine glasses you got for Christmas, but what about the mixed tape you got for your anniversary?

    I think everybody and every situation is different – but I can say that if it is causing problems within a relationship and you want this relationship to work it is surely a topic that needs to be discussed. If you ask your partner to dispose of the object or objects they are hanging on to and they refuse then I think there is reason for concern but if the can discard them like they didn’t even know they had them then I don’t think there is reason for concern.

      Good point. Every relationship is different and should be treated as such. Thank you so much for sharing.

Invite an expert to teach your team a new skill, highlight a strategy or introduce a new trend. Take your team to an offsite workshop, or benchmark another ministry or church. Any of these options illustrate your investment in the team, speak volumes to the importance of their role and create a shared learning bond for the team! Reply

      Oooo the heat has damaged the fisnih. You will need to refisnih the table in order to remove those marks. Heat damage is just the worst. I would consult a furniture shop and have them fix the fisnih if you really want a professional job done with it. Alternately, you could sand down or stri the fisnih and do the refisnihing yourself but product choice is critical. If you are determined to try a quick-fix, you could dampen some “000” grade steel wool and gently try to scrub away the damaged fisnih but if you go through, it could cause discoloration of the wood below the fisnih anyway. Sometimes this pale area is actually where the fisnih has blistered up off the surface of the wood, so it is exactly as thick as the fisnih and the wood below it is bare that is where a professional shop would probably use a stripper or a palm sander and redo the entire fisnih on the top to remove those marks.
