Making the Decision About Leaving Lolita

I don't know if this has been brought up before, and if it has, please forgive me, delete, and so forth and so on. :)

I have been toying with the idea of leaving lolita for some time now. I could get a decent amount of cash for the small amount of clothing I possess. I could really use the money for my other collections and hobbies, and perhaps even to use towards upcoming college fees. I've written up the sale posts about two or three times now, going to sell what I have. But then I always seem to stop myself.

I truly do love the fashion. I look at images of it almost daily, and always feel my heart tighten whenever I see a new dress from my favorite companies. I love going to meets and I love the people at them. But sometimes I wonder, is it worth it (for me, personally?). Should I continue this, or is it time to end? I have a history of selling things precious to me and then regretting it later, so this is probably the main cause for my hesitation.

I'm not asking for advice on my personal decision, I'm wondering about your thoughts on the matter!

I was just curious to know if anyone else has ever thought about it before. If so, did you sell everything (or mostly everything?). Did you come back (well, obviously, if you're reading this!)? Did you regret your decision, or maybe did you even regret the thought? How do you know when it's time to really let it go? :o I know its probably something better figured out on one's own, but I'd love to hear group thoughts!
