A healthy person sees something as trash and discards it. They decide if it needs to be permanently removed or transferred to another place for future resolution. And then they move forward with the rest of their life. At least I think that is the way a healthy person deals with stuff.
I take rubbish and stuff it, only to be reminded again and again that the garbage is still there. Learning to deal with the trash is a life long lesson. My education is experience, sometimes painful and difficult, but introduces growth. My personal growth is my gauge in my daily maturity. I welcome this spiritual journey.
