Thoughts on selling your old clubs? After so many rounds is it right to let them go?

"Getting beat is temporary.
-Marilyn von Savant
Seriously, think about the above quote. 80% of the people that I meet in a day have "quit," and they're just goin through the motions, waitin for their heart to stop beating. It's sad!
"Sometimes I am selfish, inpatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am occasionally out of control and at times, difficult to deal with. But, if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best!"

I didn't realize that I had waxed sentimental and never intended it. I tend to keep things I invested a lot of time learning and do not like tossing tools that are still perfectly good, especially for a fraction of what I spent on them. I do have memories with my old clubs but those memories are more of how well they worked for me and if I get into trouble, sometimes a return to the old tools helps me find the reason for my problems. Most times it's a feel good exercise seeing that they can do just as much as the new stuff and even more than I remember ever doing. That feels particularly good because it tells me I was the one that got better and not the club.
It's the stuff I dislike or am disappointed with that get recycled to find another owner. I try very hard to understand my clubs and after about six months or a year of fiddling with them I may or may not decide to keep them. Each purchase is hopefully different enough to be worth the expenditure but more often the same or inferior. Automatic Obsolescence is pervasive regardless that I look for improvements in new products.
I have a lot of Golf clubs but do not consider myself a Ho. My inventory has very little value to anyone but me and are not worth the effort of selling. Some of my most precious are so disfigured from my mistakes that even I would not buy them if they were not already mine. However, most of them can still be played.

I didn't feel called out. I felt guilty for once again having drifted from topic just because someone mentioned a set of Eye 2's. I'm such a foolish OC when those clubs are mentioned.
