Do you think you might have a tendency to divest yourself of the things in your life that actually sustain you?

I suppose this is psychology. I dont know the answer to your question. What? Do I? Do we? How would such a predeliction stack up against the world's own desire to divest one of just those things. I think I understand your question. We've been there before. And it may be a superstition with us that if we will just give up those things that we are fond of then the world will not take from us what we truly love. Which of course is folly. The world knows what you love.
