If you’ve left your marital home and only have a few sticks of worldly goods to show for your time together, bear in mind that the stuff (and that’s all it really is, ‘stuff’) can be replaced in the fullness of time.
If you had possession of more of your collective items, the likelihood is that you may have deeply sad associations when using them, which in turn could cause you more grief than not having them.
It can be quite a cathartic experience downshifting your material possessions and it’s a bizarrely interesting awakening when you realise how few items of stuff you need to survive and feel comfortable and happy with.
The greatest hurt often comes as a result of your ex having taken charge of what items you are to be furnished with as you part company.
At the end of the day, a fresh start is probably the calmest and most digestible idea all round.
