The problem with being a sponge is that you lap up and absorb EVERYTHING to the point of <insert scientific term for “fullness”> and you just start leaking.
The problem with leaking is you don’t get to choose what you leak out.
The problem with not getting to choose what to remove from your system is that you sometimes end up discarding the good and keeping in the bad.
And when you squeeze yourself to get rid of the bad, you squeeze the good out of yourself also. You end up squeezing yourself dry.
Right now I’m just trying to hold everything in.
Which is bad, I know.
My kids would never let me hear the end of this if they find out I’ve used our class forbidden words many times in this post. Eh.
