I cared for my grandparents when i was younger (early 20s) (im a nurse) cared for them full time. They passed and she left me her mothers ring which she loved. I fell into a desperate time due to takin time off from my job to care for them (upon return to work they had very few hours avail for me) and i had to sell the ring. Bills needed paid. Shit happens i guess. Well, im hitting 40 and lately ive been overwhelmed with horrible guilt over letting that ring go. I have no idea why im feeling this way all these years later. Thoughts? Anyone? Please and thank you :)

As we get older we get more sentimental. I bet it was hard to sell that ring. Imagine how much harder your life would have been had you not. try to look at it as grandma gave you something that was help to help you stay afloat during rough times. Hopefully that will ease your mind a it.

I lost a ring given to me by my grandmother, years ago. I still feel a small bit of guilt.
