Short version: The SO and I recently moved into a new place several states away. We had to get rid of stuff. The stuff was mine almost entirely. Though it was the best of hard situation, I’m upset over it. Any suggestions on how to deal with the losses without being bitter at the SO for something he couldn’t control? Anyone else ever have to deal with this kind of thing?
1) Splitting the stuff in the old apartment by who brought what in, I brought in 2/3 to his 1/3. This was due to the fact he can still store items at his parents’ houses and I cannot.
2) What was left behind was extremely common and replaceable home/garden stuff. I think we could replace everything for $150-$200, if bought new. Less than what it would have cost to move it.
3) BUT, I’m currently unemployed and can’t spare that kind of cash for non-necessities right now. Thus, I’m not happy.
I want some comfort or understanding and the SO doesn’t understand why it hurts me and says I need to stop thinking about it. But it was such a big deal when I bought these things because for first time in my life I could actually afford to buy them. And it hurts to lose them. Even if it was just a stupid flower pot or a muffin pan, etc. They were for my hobbies and items I used all the time. Bleh. 🙁
