If you put anything on this pile, box it all up and give yourself a timeline. How long do you feel needs to pass before you’ll be ready to face it? Aim for no longer than a year and put a date on the box. Then put it somewhere you can’t easily get to and note the date in your diary when you commit to dealing with it by. This is called ‘bracketing’ in therapeutic terms and is a great tool to use. Note that this is done with the understanding that you’ll revisit the items once you’ve had some breathing space and they’ve not been buried away forever.
