breaking things...

    This might sound like a random question..

    Anyhow, am just wondering if there is any hidden meaning behind always breaking things! The past few weeks, I have found I'm constantly accidently dropping things such as mugs, glasses and candle holders...

    Maybe it's that I'm just being careless, but am interested to know if anyone has any other thoughts on the topic!!

      Jessie maybe you have much on your mind ( preoccupied ) worried or have something going on that is taking all your energy. I have asked admin to move the question to the Hubber's hangout where you will get more answers. smile Welcome to HP smile

    Hopefully it has nothing to do with voodoo or taipo-shavoom hmm

    Questions to you:

    Do you have hands?

    If So... How do you find yourself with other tasks requiring Eye-Hand co-ordination?

    Eg: Catching.

    What age group - under 60 - over 60

    How good do you consider your eyesight to be?

    What is your general balance like?

    With your eyes shut (and Standing)... can you easily touch the tip of your nose with your little finger (of your left hand if you are right handed and visa versa if left handed).

    Have you noticed any noticeable loss of memory?

    Good Luck. smile

    A person who is preoccupied, maybe troubled by some unresolved problem, would tend to behave like that. Find the root cause, and things should return to normal.

    I'm not at all clumsy, but I go through phases of accidentally breaking things once every few years. I also wait on tables and never drop anything, but if I do, it's always three times in a row then not at all for years. Strange ...

    As others have said, there's a chance you've just not been as careful as you'd usually be (maybe because you're preoccupied or in a hurry).  I've never had a "breaking-things" period, but I've had the occasional three-day stretch when I've lost things (and I usually NEVER lose anything).  So, I think sometimes we just tend to notice if we break (or lose) three or four things when we usually don't. 

    Sometimes, too, with something like mugs or other stuff, it could have something to do with something as simple as what it was washed in, or whether you have particularly dry hands (not likely to "stick" to glass as much) these days or have something like a different (more slippery) moisturizer on them.  Being tired, something like not having as much caffeine as usual (etc.), are also things that could play a role.  (We tend to lose things, mess up things, drop things, etc. when we're very tired.)

    Did you change your dishwashing detergent, what you dry stuff with (or whether you dry it with something at all) - or anything like that?  Are you just using things like mugs you're not as used to handling?

    Not to be scary here, but I do know that sometimes starting to drop too many things can be a sign of one medical condition or another; ranging from something fairly minor to something that isn't.  If I noticed myself dropping too many things I think what I'd do is make a conscience effort to be careful as part of "trying to get a reading on things", and if the dropping didn't happen for a few weeks, a month, etc. I might just assume it was coincidence.  (I'd do the same if the matter were losing things, but the possible medical conditions would be different for that than for dropping things.)  If it kept going on for a few weeks I'd take it more seriously.  (Also, I'd pay attention to anything else that might be going on, symptoms/signs-wise, at the same time.)

    I don't know, of course, but my guess is it's probably just coincidence that's getting your attention and making you wonder; but I suspect, if it not just coincidence and odds there's a good chance it isn't coming from some deep, psychological, thing (or else coming as an omen on anything like that) (not sure what you meant by "hidden meaning behind it"  smile  )

        Good point.  Bad choice of words, I know.  smile   I tend to get more casual when I think I'm writing to someone personally, rather than "writing in general".  I also tend to make up my own definitions for words.  In this case, my "never" means "1.  a period of time that stretches beyond 2 to 5 years, depending the item and/or circumstances, and 2. a period of time that stretches beyond the 5 to 40 years, depending on the item and/or circumstances.   smile

        (Up until this past Winter, I'd "NEVER" lost a mitten or glove after losing my losed "puppet mittens" (mittens with a doll's face and blond braids" when I was around five.  Enough time had passed that I thought it was safe to say, "I never lose mittens or gloves".  Oops.  I lost one of the gloves someone gave me for Christmas - and I lost it about three weeks after Christmas.   lol      In any case, consider me "corrected".  smile  )

    This may related to our mind.  During some stretch of time there may be some emotional imbalance inadvertently in us and then we may drop things and break.

    Lisa HW, great explanation. Didn't mean to correct you, one tends to say that - I've heard it before.
