Throwing Away Reminders After a Relationship Ends

Group Therapy: Purging Reminders After Relationship Ends

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

About a month ago my relationship with my best friend ended on very bad terms for reasons that I'm still sort of confused by, but with the benefit of hindsight I know that it's for the best that he's not in my life anymore. I've never had an actual boyfriend, and for most of our friendship I did have feelings for him, so to me this feels a lot like I would imagine a break-up to feel like.

Anyways, as time has gone on I've taken to getting rid of a lot of reminders of him around my house (past birthday gifts, deleted any pics on my computer, etc.) but I've still got a couple notes and a t-shirt that he gave to me over the course of our relationship that I guess I'm torn over because of sentimental reasons. Would it be better for me to get rid of everything and be done with it already? And should I delete his sister from my Facebook? We only ever knew each other because I was friends with her brother and even though she's a really nice person I don't really want to be reminded of him everytime I log on, but for some reason I feel conflicted because it's the last remaining connection I have to him and I guess I'm struggling to completely let go.
