Am I wrong to feel a bit violated (please read details)?
I’m asking this question in social because I don’t want it in the federated network. Please, no jokes.
My husband and I recently lost our house to foreclosure. We were unable to get everything from our house, but my husband and I are trying to make a fresh start, which includes not holding on to things we won’t need.
I had a bad habit of accepting things from my mother, because I had trouble telling her no, and we stored a lot of items in our home. Things that were broken, but if fixed, could be useful. We never had the time or money to fix these things.
I told my mother we left a lot of items at the house. We just didn’t have the time, or vehicle, to haul these items. the house is 60miles from our new home Some things I wanted, but I knew I couldn’t return to get them.
I just learned that my mother and father went to the house “treasure hunting” and took many items to their home. My sister told me this, she was invited to go. No one asked, or told me before they went.
I feel a bit violated that they went through my personal belongings. Should I say something to my parents, or is it best to just let go?
