Do you take care of things that someone may give you? Are you grateful?

I am. My cousin gave me this bracelet years ago. I still have it. She gave it to me when I was 17 years old I think.. Now I am 29 and I still hold onto to it.. When she sees me wearing the things she gives me, she is shocked.. I value what someone may give me. I take it into my best interest to take care of it.. How are you able to appreciate what someone may lend or give to you?

Hi Cream Yes I really do. I will keep the gifts I recieved from others for ever, even if it is a very small thing. I think those things shows their care and love towards me what ever it may be. I kept with me the greeting cards I recieved from my childhood from my friends and relatives. When ever I see them I remember those nice old days, my childhood friends, the small small incidents happened, fond memories etc. This will make me happy. I can not throw away those things given by others.

yeah i always treasure all things that are given to me either from my family, friends and also from my girl friends. sometimes we have friend that want the things that are given to us but i always refuse them and said it was given to me from a specially friend and it's annoying if i will give it to you and she/he saw it in you, maybe she/he will not give anymore to me because i never treasure the things she/he give me. they understand me of what i explain to them.

a nice watch as a gift from my friend - I value it a lot. Each time when I see it, it reminds me of my best friend who gave it to me. To see my nice gift is to see her in person. I love my gift the way I miss her.
Hello dear cream. I appreciate your taking good care of the gifts given to you by your friends. It is the same with me. I have a very nice watch given to me as a gift for my birthday and I seldom wear it because I do not want to make it worn out. Most time it is kept in my drawer. I value it a lot. Each time when I see it, it reminds me of my best friend who gave it to me. To see my nice gift is to see her in person. I love my gift the way I miss her. Thank you for your discussion.

Hmmm ,I keep everything from my friends .For me ,I'm not a guy careful enough in my daliy life .I alwyas lose something of my own like books keys and even my coats .But it's lucky for me that i never lose the things that i borrowed form others or the things that my friends give me ... i remember the thing that i keep longest is a card from one of my friend during my primary life... the words and the card both looked so lovely///

I treasure everything my friends gave me, especially from my close friends. I have a surprise gift from a friend and to date, I have not forgotten about the gift and the journey it travelled to reach me. The thought of it would just bring a smile to my lips.

I've always try to take good care of things regardless of whether someone gave it to me or if I bought it. Somethings are kept packed away b/c it's the only way to keep them safe but some I have out and your right, ppl are amazed when they see you still have it and it's still in one piece. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Hi cream97! I do take care of all the things that were given to me and really keep and wear them. I know how the giver will feel happy seeing me wear it or use it. I would feel the same way when I see people using the things I have given them. Take Care and God Bless!

Yes I am. Actually I take most special care to the things that have been given to me rather than the things that I bought. I am very appreciative.

I always take care of my things. Sometimes things just break or whatever because that's just how it goes. Some things just aren't made well and end up breaking, but regardless, I try to take really good care of my stuff, regardless of who gave it to me.

I always take care of things that are given to me. I'm a bit stingy too when people want to borrow it or look at it, I usually don't even let them near it.

I try to take care of the things that people give me. I really do. And I keep things for years and years. Sometimes I have a hard time getting rid of things people gave me. Because I feel bad, but iof I don't use it anymore, and I don't have room for it, I have to, don't I?

My daughter gave me a china Doll,my sons gave me,a teddy with a big heart saying "I love you mum", A Porcelain Dragon with three heads and a Crystal ball held by a circle of eight dragons. They are all very special gifts and I will Treasure them forever.

I am also good in taking care of the things given to me.But, for clothes, I tend to give it to my sister and cousins once it will not fit anymore. I find it very impractical to keep it where in fact, people can still use it! but, if something that will last long and I can use longer without considering my weight and size, I will always keep it!
