So you have a hard time to throw things away, you know so well that it is a matter of saying yes or no and it is always answerable by yes but you are stuck up with the but. Remember that but would be followed always by maybe and there’s a big chance to becoming it into no. And with that you should have a plan B. You have to put it in your mind that hanging on to the old memories can stop you to move on and it is stopping you also from giving space to a new one coming. Saying Goodbye is hard, it is always hard I guess there is no easy way to get through it. Even though it is hard, through time you will learn to accept it. Do it in phases, take it one at a time, and move slow and soon you will achieve your goal of being a totally new person.
