Tis the season – no, not Christmas yet – of Halloween candy. Whether you buy it at the store and eat it all before the trick-or-treating or your children bring loads of it home on October 31, there will be candy and it will be tempting.
You may have memories of your own trick-or-treating fun as you watch your children choose which candy is their favorite, which gets thrown or traded away, and which ones they absolutely must share with you. The way a person handles Halloween candy may reveal a deeper part of their personality and how they handle their wedding memories after their divorce.
What do you do with Halloween candy after October 31?
What Type of Halloween Candy Kid Are you?
Of course, Buzzfeed already has a quiz to determine which type of candy matches your personality. Go ahead and take it. We’ll wait.
You’re back? Okay, where were we?
If you think about it, what you do with your Halloween candy may also reveal a little bit of your personality.
You may notice, for instance, that you or your children handle their candy in the following ways:
- Hide their stash away, eat a piece now and then and eventually forget about it
- Choose the candy they really like and then happily give the rest away or trade it for what really want
- Dive into the stash and keep eating until they don’t feel very well
Have you recognized yourself in any of these scenarios? How does it relate to how you handle the memories of your wedding or marriage after your divorce?
What Your Halloween Candy Says About Your Wedding Memories
If you noticed yourself within one or any of these scenarios, you’ll have some idea of what you may be like with your wedding mementos. For instance, let’s consider your wedding dress or your wedding ring.
- If you hide your candy and eventually forget about it, you may have done the same with your wedding dress or ring. Are they hidden away in your closet forgotten and gathering dust?
- Are you the selective candy eater? Would you consider selling your dress or your ring for something you really want?
- If you eat until you’re miserable, you may find you’re not quite ready to let go of those physical memories from your marriage.
After the divorce, it can be difficult to remove those things in your life that no longer serve you. Unlike candy that becomes inedible the longer you keep it, your wedding ring still has value. If it’s gathering dust, it may be time to trade it and use the money for something that will benefit you. And if you’re still protective of your ring and you’re not ready to get rid of it, it may be a good idea to consider a divorce recovery program.
