Days 237 and 238 – Let the Guilt Go
Some of you readers that come back again and again may know my level of discomfort with doling out advice, but I have no qualms about putting this out there:let the guilt go already.
You already bought whatever it is that you feel guilty about.
You probably can’t return it at this point.
It keeps staring you in the face and making you feel guilty every time you see it.
LET IT GO!
And here’s why you should feel good about it.
Do you donate to charity?
Do you feel guilty about that?
If you donate clothing, housewares, electronics, toys, pet stuff, a frog band, or an impulse accordion that you don’t use, you are making a contribution two-fold. The charity that runs your thrift store makes money. Most clothing items at my store run between $1.00 and $8.00. So if I average them I can say I am making approximately a$4.50 donation every time I give an article of clothing. Imagine what that adds up to in a year.
Secondly you’re giving a chance to a person (probably on a limited budget) who needs whatever it is that you don’t.
If you want to feel guilty, feel guilty about leaving something unworn hanging in your closet or stuffing your drawers doing nothing.
If you don’t believe me, believe this.
Watch out, it’s a little bit addictive.
Pretty cool, huh?
By the way, here is what I donated.
And that’s it.
