There has been an issue in my life that has caused a lot of pain for me although I say that I don't care. Part of me doesn't want to care but the other 98% of me cares a lot. But I keep pushing it down hoping that maybe it will go away or that I will forget about it.
Like the piece of trash, it won't go away and if I don't bend over, pick it up and throw it away it will only gather dust. Which means that the longer I leave it there, the more dust it will accumulate. And when I finally do pick it up, the dust goes everywhere and causes an even bigger mess for me to clean up. Logically, I should have picked up the trash on the first glance and called it a day. But maybe it would hurt to bend over to pick it up or maybe it took too much energy.
Like the event in my life...had I addressed the hurt as soon as possible maybe the aching in my gut wouldn't hurt quite so bad and when it comes time to deal with the problem, i wouldn't have to go digging around so much dust because I let it sit there for so long. Right now I don't have the energy and like the piece of trash, my issue is slowly gathering dust and won't be long before the trash needs to taken out.
