This bag broke when I was in Bucharest. H&M bag 10 euros. I liked it. Spring colour. Yes, I really liked it. However, the straps got loose and I couldn’t use it any longer. I thought. I even put it in the bin.
Then somebody said to me : Why are you throwing it away ? Why not just mend it ?
Yes, why not just mend it ?
Because it was “only 10 euros” ? Only 10 euros. Is that my perception of money and things? Hm.
Well, somebody mend it for me and it looks like new.
Where did my reaction come from ? Throwing away things instead of mending them ?
Did I forget about mending ?
The irony is that this happened in Romania and after we had delivered the donations to the children’s camp.
How was that possible ?
