How hard is it for you to let go of stuff? The term 'hoarding' mainly refers to accumulation of objects, usually with little or no value, either emotional or economical. There's also a syndrome, called Diogenes and its main characteristic is hoarding things (sometimes even animals - the crazy cat lady thing). I'm forced by circumstances to get rid to a whole lot of my material possessions and I've decided to sell some of it. While taking pictures in order to list them I found it amazingly hard to let go. I have to be honest - a lot of the clothes I initially wanted to sell I'm keeping because I can't part with them. And truth be told it's quite probable I'll never wear them ever again. The flowery dress in the picture - I wore that only once but I can't imagine not owning it. I can't help it. In a way I believe this attachment we have with objects is a way of trying to cheat the passing of time. We still own that we owned when we were young, thus we must still be young. Sure, that is just a twisted logic our subconsciousness is using to avoid anxiousness, but who knows, maybe it works. On a similar note I find it amazing how most of us have a strong attachment to places. As a kid I lived in a number of cities, due to my father being in the military and I got a sense of restlessness that's been following me around as an adult. I find it hard living in the same place for long periods of time and being tied down by property is sort of distressing. Overall I can see quite a contradiction, maybe it's just compensatory.
Anywaysss, the flowery dress may not be for sale, but here's a preview of a few others which are.

Palarierul se lanseaza inexorabil in alta divagatie pe teme inutile, dar in rezumat, iata un preview al unor rochii ce vor fi disponibile pe blog. (rochia verde cu floricele din prima fotografie nu este disponibila)

I suck at parting with stuff :| My room back home still looks pretty much as it did when I was 14. After I moved out from home I used to dream (more like I used to nightmare:P) that my mom also moved from our apartment and I won't ever be able to see my room again. And sleep in my bed, where I get the best sleep ever. Hence, I'm totally lost without the sense of familiarity things and places give me. Also applicable to people (I have a huge collage on my wall with pictures of all my friends and family). In my case I;m positive it has to do with the fear of the passing time. Well, it was nice to exchange phobias with you, dear Mad Hatter :))
