If you have followed my threads, I have stepped back from my relationship with my daughter for now. It is mutual, for the first time. Before it is has always been on her side, with me waiting and even actively attempting to reach out. Here is where I am curious if others have had this happen and how they handle it. She has left several personal things at my house. Things I would "think" she needs. She has done this in the past. Left her entire life at my house like I am a free storage building. Last time she left it over a year, even though it was not where it would be protected and was slowly going to rot. I repeatedly asked her to come get it, warned her it would be no good. I finally just cleaned it out - then six months later she came asking for it and was pissed because I got rid of it. Now I am stuck (again) with her stuff. I have asked her about it a couple of times and she has blown it off. I know a big part of it is because she is transient and just floating wherever on whatever couch. And now we aren't really speaking at all. I have had this stuff for about 6 months. I have no idea what to do with it all. If I do nothing, she will leave it here indefinitely. If I donate it, she will no doubt come around completely pissed that I gave it away. And I don't want to contact her because (a) she won't come get it and will have nine kinds of excuses why and (b) I don't want to open that door to her. Part of me feel she doesn't even care about any of it, but it is a control thing. Have any of you ever just been stuck with their stuff? Had them use you as free storage to freeload their belongings? What do you do? How long do you hang onto it?
