Sorry you gave away something that was meaningful. In all my decluttering, I haven't had this happen (yet). Maybe it would be helpful to give things that you feel sentimental about a little bit longer of a time period to hang around before you let it go. As far as separating things from memories, perhaps you could sit down one day and write a little journal entry about the butterfly, what it meant to you, and how you felt after it was gone. This way you won't have the...
