One of the biggest and hardest parts of the grieving process is going through your departed loved one’s belongings and figuring out what’s worth keeping and what you need to let go of.

One man recently made a big move and started letting go of some of his late wife’s things, but her family began freaking out.

He’s 34 and sadly lost his wife a little over three years ago. They had known each other since they were kids and started dating in high school. Her death took a massive toll on his mental health, and he could hardly carry on with his normal routine for the first year afterward.

“We never had kids but had been planning to when she died,” he explained.

“Her family come and visit often. They like coming to our house and remembering the good times with my wife. It sort of helps that everything is the way my wife left it.”

“Recently, I’ve been working with my therapist, and I’ve been opening myself to moving on. I’m starting to let go of the past and think about the future.”

He learned that one of the best ways to move on from his wife’s passing is to start letting go of some of her belongings, which had gone untouched since she died.

Over the last few days, he’s been slowly going through his wife’s things. He decided to put all of her basic clothing in a box for donations and threw away anything that was stained or unwearable.

He took her nicer and favorite clothes like her t-shirts, dresses, and sweaters and organized them in his dining room so her relatives could take anything they wanted.
