Moved so much out of the house today. 

I can't say it didn't hurt.

Gonna return a few things here and there.

There's something that I need to give back. 

Part of me wants to keep it for my own reasons.

The other part can't see any reason to hold on.

I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

    i once wrote a ghazal poem on the subject of having a clear-out that would rid my home and ('therefore') my head of things i might be better off without,
    but even unhealthy sentimental attachments can riddle your un-cluttering mind with doubt...
    and thereby make the whole process tricky.
    i would therefore suggest caution;
    if you're not sure if you want to get rid of something forever, pack it away where you can't see it, and if you don't miss it over the next eg 6 months, then dispose of it (recycle / donate to charity); if you're still undecided, leave it there for another eg six months / until you're sure that letting it go won't lead to regret.
    best wishes, J

      That is probably the most helpful piece of advice I've received in a really long time. Thank you so much.
