What a cute story! Instead of getting rid of things piecemeal, as we are normally used to seeing done, he sells the entire lot.
I'll bet someone
would like the house and some of the stuff, but the job? and the friends?
Now that takes a special buyer!
Yes, in our lives we experience "deaths", some of us more, some less. I put off a "death" in my Life for years, until I could no longer do so, by
choice. The only things I took with me were my self-respect and dignity. Well, actually a few more things, but not much more, and I truly didn't care
about "things" I left behind.
I heard that said, too, about being "brave". I didn't consider that at all, as it was just something I had to do. It is true, that you think you
can't be brave, but then when something happens, you find you are. I felt sorry sometimes for some people who said (with a hint of sadness) I was
"brave", as if maybe they wanted to do something in their Life but were afraid to do it.
He will find that the value of what he left behind cannot begin to compare with the value of what he will gain.
