After having a failure relationship, I still can't throw away my ex's photos. Yes it hurting me more but inside I still clinging for those memories that it brings whenever I look at it. I just can't let go. My friends usually encouraging me to put it away somewhere that I will not see it often. But I'm too stubborn and can't help myself to view it from time to time. Am I being sadistic to myself? In your case what you do with your ex's photographs?

I still keep them. On my desk and also in my wallet. I think I don't have the intention to throw it away. I just don't know why but I feel better to retain the photo. The reason could be because I haven't found a new one. I think you are also a person who treat relationship seriously and couldn't let go memory easily. Don't worry pal, time will heal all wound.

You hit me bulls eye. That's why I threw away all the pictures of her that I had. Cause I know we cannot be together anymore and I felt like being betrayed when we broke up. Its almost about decade and the pain still haunting me.

There was a time in my life that I also have the same experienced like you. I had this ex who's very dear to me, I'd say she's the one I loved most. I still kept her photos few years ago, and I always brought it out to see it whenever I missed her. And like you, I was really stubborn not to throw it at that time. Although I know that it will help me to overcome the depression, I still cling to it as my most valuable possession. Some say that you have to fight your feelings and use your head over your heart. All you have to do is mindset and accept that you are not meant for each other. That you have to move on with your own life. But some will say that in God's time, your wound will heal, and time of letting go will come. That you don't have to force yourself to forget her. That whatever you will do, this bitterness will remain in you. But the sad part is no one knows when will this healing come. Between the above two paragraphs, I chosed the latter, I just let go of my ex's photographs when there's no more hurting.

There are times when I feel that I already got over it and seems like time helps me to gradually ease the pain. But along with it there are also times when I still pouring tears in silence.

Yes I still have my EX's pictures with me. Well, in my computer that is. I kind of tore the printed photos cos of my anger but the ones in the computer (which is a lot more compared to what I tore) are still saved in a folder. I take a look from time to time. I don't know. Especially when I miss being in a relationship.

I am the type who is fond of keeping memories. So if anything happens, like a past relationship that didn't work, I love to keep memories. I don't throw them because I know that time will come, I will see the photos again. I will surely laugh my hear out and reminisce of the lessons that i've learned.

i understand you feeling,but i think it is not a good choice to throw her/his photos,because, anyway,you two once loved each other. if you really throw her/his photos,when someday you think of her/him,then you can't even remember her/him in you head,then you will be regret what you have done. pls do everything calm,and believe that time can recover all the unhappy things. trust me,i exprienced such things myself not long ago. everything will be ok very soon.

I still have my ex- husband photos w/ me even,those pictures of my previous relationships i have during teens and college days.Nothing's wrong of keeping them.From time to time glancing at them you will always remember those happy moments you were together and all the sad memories you are were w/ them but, mine i still can't throw my ex- hubby's because he is the father of my 3 lovely daughter that always remind me of him because of thier resemblance esp. my eldest one.God Bless!!

Yes, actually, I threw them away and deleted them in my pc. But then, when i've moved on, it's okay to save his picture cos they amuse me a lot for the reason that i plainly do not know, LOL!

I have kept all the photos. I keep them in a box in the basement. Maybe one day I will be glad that I saved them. I have alot of pictures, mostly because I love aking pictures with my camera.

I did not throw them but I kept them in a place that is very inaccessible.Photographs really bring back memories. I did not plan to hurt myself forever.I wanted to move on that's why I put them a way.
