Let go, monkey
We tend to hold on to things; material things, but also the things we learn, as well as the array of qualities that make up our own picture of ourselves.
Life is the struggle to move onward and upward.
Accumulation is at the same time instrumental to and a byproduct of success.
And so we find it so hard to let go.
Even when letting go is the smartest way out.
Even when letting go is the only way out.
