Your feelings are like the water in the cistern. You need water to flush the shit out continuously, or else the shit will pile up inside you.
If too much time goes by and you don’t flush, the shit becomes too hard and stays where it is even if you try to flush. And then you need help to dig it out and get the flushing to work again…
The moral is: You cannot avoid taking shit but don't hold it in! Remember to flush it right away!
