dressing up your emotions

Feelings are a lot like the clothes we wear. 

Some people change their wardrobe on a whim. Others hang onto things that are clearly meant to be given up. There are those who wear the same basic outfit each day, protective over what they're used to. Another group of people make everyone else uncomfortable with how naked they seem to be.
 What should be "donated" for the sake of "charity?"

What should be "saved" for the sake of "protection?"

And for that matter, what should we be clothing ourselves in to begin with?
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful." (Colossians 3:12-15)
