Shlog 10: Get Rid Of or Not Get Rid Of, That Is The Question?
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
A male cousin wondered what I was doing with my clothes that are now too big. He jokingly said he could use some new clothes and they might fit him. This conversation was going on with all female relatives around the table.
I told him that I had boxed a lot of them up and given them to the Epilepsy Foundation, as they come and pick them up from your curbside. One of the females around the table had a look of disdain and didn't think that was such a good idea. You might need them. What if you gain weight back again, she said.
I just said that I had worked too hard and wasn't planning on gaining that amount of weight back ever again. I have kept a few things that were really new and are maybe 1 to 2 sizes bigger than what I am wearing now.
Her doubts gave me a mixed reaction. I felt a little anger and resentment, some hurt, and doubt.
Anyhow, it is too late now....they are gone for good. But, I am still not sure how to answer the question??? Get rid of? or Not get rid of?
