Well, it's been almost two weeks since the D was final. I haven't been able to wear any of the jewlery Xh gave me for a while, and now I'm considering my options.... I'd like to know what you all think.<P>Option 1 ~ Have it all melted down, and redesigned. I've even been sketching several ideas. I could have several pieces made from what I have. However, I'm worried that whatever I have made will always be a trigger to me. Then again, it could be a reminder to me of all the things I have learned through this journey, and how to have a successful relationship in the future.<P>Option 2 ~ Sell it all, and use the money to buy myself something for the "new me". That way it would not be directly connected to my X. Maybe buy some new jewlery, some new art, or maybe some new cloths. Maybe all of the above.<P>Option 3 ~ Melt down/redesign our wedding rings and sell the rest. <P>I'm having a hard time with this right now... all the pieces were gifts for special events in our lives. Pieces I thought I would treasure forever, and now I can't stand to look at them. <P>What do you all think?<P>Love, Thoughts & Prayers,<BR>Butterfly<P>------------------<BR>There are deep sorrows and killing cares in life, but the encouragement and love of friends were given us to make all difficulties bearable. <BR>-- John Oliver Holmes<P>The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.<BR>-- Elie Wiesel<P><BR>
