“There’s this idea around people removing anything from their life doesn’t serve them. It’s like, ‘Oh, that doesn’t serve me, I’m removing that from my life.’ What’s underlying this…is the idea that we should only keep things in our life that serve us, e.g. ‘Everyone in the world is here to serve me and everything in the world is here for my sole perpetual pleasure.’ The reason I think that’s problematic is because if you’re going to throw away a person or a relationship at the very first sign of challenge, or dissatisfaction, or conflict, then you’re going to rob yourself of a lot of opportunities for growth, and for healing, and for forgiveness.”
