18-year-old Janiah Sanders recently went through a bad breakup with her now ex-boyfriend, and decided that she wanted to cleanse herself of the relationship and move on. How? By purging all the items and gift that he had given to her. Two of the items included a diamond ring that Sanders wore as a "promise" and a diamond necklace.
It was a symbol of his love for me and how much I meant to him,” she told BuzzFeed News. However, once their relationship started going south, the promise he made her and the jewelry that came along with it “lost all its meaning and value.”
In an act that appears to be nothing more than therapeutic, Sanders recorded herself tossing the jewelry down a local sewer and posted the final act on her Twitter page.

The video quickly went viral and has gotten more than 3.5 million views. After she posted the video, a huge debate started and many voiced their thoughts on Sanders' video.

Others understood where she was coming from.
Everybody coming at her with “should’ve pawned/sold them” couldnt have felt true pain before. I’m sure her pain was healed more by dropping those down the drain than some bills. Money is nice but giving your soul peace is better. https://t.co/JL2QCW0pW4— Reine. (@TheQueenNoni) March 11, 2018
