My boyfriend got me a beautiful bracelet, unfortunately it has come off over the months but I was stupid and wore it again, it fastened with a silver bar through a circle hoop bit so it came undone yesterday out of all days I was out and about. I'm devastated. What did you do when you lost the item that meant a lot to you?

I lost a pocketknife given to me by a fellow FF for being in his wedding.
I moved across country & then lost it 3 times. I went to look for it. Easy enough since I could remember the last time I pulled my keys out of my pocket.
The last time I couldn't find it until a few years later when I was getting a new couch. There it was under the old couch.
I felt bad because I liked it, used it & no longer see this person.0

I can't remember when I've lost something someone important gave to me but I do remember when the fastener for the necklace my boyfriend got me broke and my mum fixed it. I later admitted to my boyfriend about that and he told me I should've just told him and he'd have brought me another one but I told him there's no need to worry since it's fixed now.
I have lost items I liked or they've gotten broke beyond repair before though.
Those things upset me at the time, particularly when I was little but then one Christmas, when I was 17 I got a bottle of Katy Perry "Purr" perfume that I'd always wanted since I saw it in a Top Of The Pops magazine years prior. Since I was little I've always had a bit of an obsession with cats so I wanted this cat shaped perfume bottle almost as soon as I saw it in that magazine and finally they were selling it in Argos so I asked for it as part of my Christmas present.
I was so excited when I finally got the bottle and placed it carefully back in its box and on my chest of drawers after squirting some. I kept taking it out and looking at the bottle but ensuring when it put it down, that it was no where near the edge of the drawers in case it fell.
I asked myself "What would I do if this ever did break?" at first as I recall, I thought I'd be upset but maybe I could get another one anyway. I thought about it for a moment and realised that actually, it didn't really matter if the bottle broke - I have 2 REAL cats who I love more than some plastic/glass bottle, especially my cat Monty, she is far more important than a cat shaped perfume bottle.
possessions don't necessarily make you all that happy anyway, bonding with good people and animals does -
If I had to choose between the 2, I'd rather have my cat Monty than a silly cat-shaped perfume bottle, I'd rather have my Mum than my childhood toy (which she always did the voice for anyway), I'd rather hang out with my friends than have a load of teddy bears and I'd rather save up and spend my money on having a day out with my boyfriend than on an expensive dress.
Basically how I get over losing items I like or those items breaking, is realising that people in my life are way more important than objects and some can make me much happier.
Yes, you lost the necklace he gave you, but you haven't lost your boyfriend :)0
