Letting Go.... What to Do With the Ring...

Took my 14K wedding ring, and had them melt it and make an earring for me.

Well I took my wedding ring and threw it into a canal near my home while walking my dog in the morning. It was quite liberating really. I had considered flushing it down the toilte. The ring was always an embarrassment even when we were happy. The diamond was so small. I used to say well it's not the ring, it's the man and the happy marriage.

I think I didn't want to just destroy it and never know whether it was a filling in someones tooth. <br />
<br />
It had so much meaning and maybe special power, which I wanted to release. <br />
<br />
Now, I'll always know where it is.

Ouch... does it pain you at all or depress you to know that the earing you wear once had much more meaning? Or was the marraige that bad, that it honestly doesn't matter? <br />

Well either, way...I am sorry you had to go through a divorce. I know it isn't easy.
