Feeling Naked Without This

Is there an item that you wear everyday that you feel naked if you do not have it on? Be it a piece of clothing, jewelry, make-up?

Apart from my phone, I never leave home without this item: my wedding ring. It is funny, but it has become such a part of what I wear everyday. I was thinking about it the other day. Why is it so important to me to wear it everyday and why do I feel like something is missing if I don’t have it on? I came to the conclusion that wearing my wedding ring everyday when I leave the house is like taking a piece of my husband and our love with me. Every time I look at the ring, it reminds me of him, of us, our marriage, and the love we share. I know, may sound cheesy, but it is true.I even wear it to go to the gym. I sometimes go to the gym without any make-up or earrings, but I am always wearing my wedding ring.

For some, the one item they feel naked without may be a watch, lipstick, mascara, a certain necklace, a pair of earrings, or a scapulary. What item do you wear everyday that you feel naked without? Do you know why you feel this way? Does it just make you feel better or is there an emotional connection to the item?
