People Explain Which Things They've Lost That They'd Love To Be Reunited With

At one point in time, we've misplaced things that we've considered priceless possessions.


It's hard to imagine how to go on without the lost object–whatever it may be–but over time, it becomes a distant memory and we move on.

That is until we magically find ourselves presented with this opportunity proposed by Redditor mikehotel288, who asked:

"You find yourself in a room with everything you’ve ever lost in your life. What do you look for first?"

There are necessities people cannot do without.

No More Dry Lips Ever Again

"Gonna be a lot of chapstick in that room."

– camefromxbox

There are things that bring us comfort and are irreplaceable.

Safety Blanket

"My baby blanket. It became tattered over the years—to the point where I couldn’t reasonably wash it anymore—so I had to throw it away a little while back."

"I have heavily regretted that decision. I was really attached to it (hence it being in tatters), but I really wish that I kept what was left of it instead of throwing it away. Just knowing that I’d still have it would be a huge comfort to me."

– Uearie

Sentimental Heirloom

"The pendant my dad had made for me with my grandmother’s engagement diamond. It was 2 carats. It disappeared from a Las Vegas hotel room 20 years ago. It was hidden deep in a suitcase where it would not have been easy to find. It was just GONE. Cops didn’t do anything. Didn’t even come to take my statement. Cleaning lady said she thought she saw an elderly man enter my room. The guy I was with was not sympathetic in the least. Entire situation was f**ked. I’m still so upset about it."

– MaritimeDisaster

Lone Shark

"My plastic shark toy I lost when I was 10. Ain't no f'king way it just VANISHED."

– Guilty_As_Charged__

Not everything lost is tangible.

Tick Tock

"The time I wasted."

– shinyfennec

It Holds Value

"My private key with 6 BTC in it."

– Significant_Mirror19

"I didn't lose one, but I'll check my room for yours just in case."

– Smodphan

Finding Purpose

"The reason I walked into the room."

– Lloyd_lyle

Lost Opportunity

"That one girl i spoke to on omegle lol"

– h-amishh

If only we get to reunite with those we've lost.

The Loved Family Member

"My grandpa."

– Splatty_boi_420

Grieving Parent

"My daughter. She’ll be in my brother’s arms. So I’ll find both things I care to look for."

– SeeTheFence

Missing Mom

"My mom. She died of cancer in 2017. She never got to meet my daughter. I miss the hell out of her and wish she was still part of my family’s life."

– X-Arkturis-X

The Animals That Come Into Our Lives

"My pets that have passed: especially my horse, Blue. It's been 4 years, but it feels like just yesterday."

– Baciandrio

While many of these scenarios are unlikely, the thread gave people an opportunity to reflect on the things that made a strong impression on their lives.

Sometimes, the memories of the things we've lost–whether they are random objects or sources of love–is all we have.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.
