A fire broke out ion my parents garage which they use as storage a few days ago, and all my things growing up from clothes to purses to sentimental items like photos gone. Im really grateful that my parents were not hurt. There are a lot of things that I was planning to pick up, i only moved out a few years ago. Super emotional but thankful at the same time.

Oh, Bee! That is so awful. Yes, it is so fortunate that your parents are ok, but my heart breaks for you, losing so many treasured possessions. I am very sorry, Bee.

Omg, I understand…. my grandmother’s house just went up in flames about a month ago. My aunt and her husband were also living there, as my aunt was my grandmother’s caregiver, and they were both serious packrats. The most important thing is that they all got out relatively unharmed, and I know stuff is just stuff, but I also know it also meant a lot to them, and it’s so debastating to lose all of that. I’m so sorry for everything; I know it’s difficult and emotional. But in time, I hope the pain will be less. At least your parents are still here; it definitely could have been much worse. Best of luck to your family as you all overcome this tragedy.

Oh, I feel for you so much! If it makes you feel better, something similar happend to me with childhood things at my mother’s house, straight out of college. (Though because of a move and a flood) Even valuable documents like my original birth certificate with my baby footprints and the absolutely only exisiting picture of my father and me are gone. (I never saw/met him aside from this one baby picture) It hurts and it stings for a while, but it does get bettter with time. I have found that with time you start making new memories and the ties to those old items fade. I no longer feel much of a sense of regret at all. You will get there. Try not to focus on it bacause you can’t change it and it gets easier.
