I heard once that monkey trappers trap monkeys by digging a hole and putting some bananas in it.

They then place a heavy metal plate over the hole that has a hole big enough for the monkey to reach in but too small for the bananas to be pulled back out.

Next, the monkeys come along, reach in, and grab the bananas.

Finally, the hunters come along and grab the monkeys, who get easily caught because they won’t let go of the bananas.

Sometimes when we hang on too long we set ourselves up just like the banana loving monkeys

Letting go can save us a lot of trouble.

P.S. Is the monkey story true? Email me your answer!
