Q: I was wondering whether you would kindly give me some advice.
I'm sure my problem is common to many people, and yet it is not really addressed on the internet anywhere.
My problem is that after my mum died two years ago, I, as only child, had to deal with all her stuff (most of it I have donated). However I am confused emotionally about her framed finished paintings she did - I haven't been able to get rid of them although I don't think I want them. She was very violent to me when I was a child and never close to me emotionally. She gave me away when I was 8.
