Ripping off that band aid
Ever since you're young, you are told and taught that anything painful should be done quickly so that the pain doesn't last longer. It's when you are young and you fall and scratch your knee or elbow and a band aid is put on there to sooth the pain. Later on, the band aid that was there to help protect the wound has to be removed. They teach you to rip it off quickly rather than to remove it slowly just because it might be too painful to let go of that cushion, that comfort. Life is like that too, sometimes. You have to do the quick painful things to let go of those comforts, sometimes for the good.
