Throwing away childhood photo

Hello, My question is for years, I have had a large box of childhood photos and memories from my dis-NOT-Fun-ctional childhood that I desperately want to throw out. The box is full of mold, it smells and yet I feel as if I am supposed to keep these pictures after all most of the people have passed and this was my life. I am more a live in the moment type than one to get lost in the past but this is still tricky for me. Who throws away family photos?

C: Moldy, old photos of my family
T: My family will not understand – something is wrong with me even thinking this
F: Confused
A: None
R: Clutter , mold and carrying around this that have no value to me
