Omg. I feel you. For such items with such sentimental value and meaning to it, I'd usually keep it hidden away in my own secret stash!It depends on what the item means to me. I have a quilt my grandmother gave to me before she died, wrote it in her will. This stupid jerk I was dating spilled beer all over it, and I had to control myself so much so I wouldn't kick him in the face. It still smelled like her house, I love the smell of her house, and I had to wash the smell off because of him. He didn't care though.
Out of everything my grandmother wrote down, there was one thing I wanted. I didn't care about the silverware. I didn't care about the quilt, or the rosary beads or the tea cups. I wanted the marbles. The "Hull gull" marbles her and I used to play with when I was little. It was my first experience with a game. Those marbles meant something to me. I'm an INFP and I appreciate most the one on one interactions. It's the most genuine act to me, so when I had that with her, those marbles symbolized the bond we created. Grandmother and granddaughter. Yes, I get possessive but only if it has a connection with it. If it's a hair brush, I really don't give a crap if a toddler breaks it or drools on it. Oh well, get a new one some time. If it has meaning attached to it, then I actually cry and want to kill someone over it.
Well, then may somebody gather all your lost stuff and give them to me hahaAlways...sometimes with people I become secretly possessive. It's not that I don't want them to hang out with other people..I just want them to remember me and stay close to me because, well, I'd do the absolute same for them
What's funny is I lose things so much that I've become apathetic. I don't cry when I lose it..it's just like, "Oh, I lost this thing I've paid an arm and leg for. I'm okay with that."
That is pretty funny, but pretty sad at the same time. I have that problem too, sometimes.I think only maybe with my computer.
People sometimes get frustrated with me because I don't get possessive of them and I don't get jealous. It's like they think I don't love them or something.
