Nobody Wants to Sell a Lifetime of Memories? Real Estate
This video is an UNDERSTATEMENT. The memories of this INCREDIBLE home are a very hard thing to deal with. I want to buy this place! Or is it the memories and stories that I want? What an incredible place! I have experienced a few similar long time family homes being sold and burnt down lately. It is SO hard. But then again it is liberating. I hope a relative gets to buy this place maybe have a relative stay here as a live in care taker, maybe Gram Grahm can retire out of the country. In a place that is not so crazy expensive. I would LOVE it is she could go with you and enjoy the travel. I'm sure there are compatible if not better options elsewhere. But then again , Orland seems like a heaven on earth. This is a very hard thing. I feel like I'm a member of your family. I really feel for you Brother!
One great lesson I have learned from my 30 year recovery from alcoholism is there are emotions that control our decisions more than logic. Yet, people do believe they are logical, but seldom are, 98 percent emotional. Until we accept, validate, and take emotions into the variables of a decision, we are just being delusional. To make a good decision, we first must weigh our emotional, memories. Yet, ego defense mechanism stop humans from thinking, cognitive biases, fear of social status, we are one big emotional animal, very little logic involved. Work on the emotions, then we work on the logic. Yet here, Mom Graham is being forced into a decision, the location of the home does not have public transportation, although maybe people that drive the Amish, may be our solution. My sisters are emotionally in fear of Mom Graham death, and want to put here in a box, an assisted care place so they feel safe.
Mom Graham went on a 1.2 mile walk yesterday in the dark of morning, about 5:30 am, deciding for some reason this was a good idea, Although Orland is very safe, I am now afraid, can we stop her from being bull headed? She makes her own decisions, and will indeed have to live with them. She emotionally needed to prove that she can walk to my Fathers grave site, and on and on the emotional rollwr coaster goes. Yet, she is of sound mind, much more than most people who sit around ranting, and in rage all day, the sure sign of emotional problems is rants, and we all have them, but some people are never-ending rants. Mom Graham seldom rants, but does make decisions to get a rise from me, or the family.
I do not wish to sell these memories, but will not give up my lifestyle and life to protect them. It is just a house, and as the Vietnam Vest say, "Don't Mean Nothing."
