"A little kid asks my dad why that man is chopping down the tree.

Dad: He's not chopping it down. He's saving it. Those branches were long dead from disease. All plants are like that. By cutting off the damage you make it possible for the tree to grow again. You watch - by the end of summer, this tree will be the strongest on the block."

Laurie Halse Anderson

I love how metaphors can sometimes mean different things to different people. This metaphor is perfect. To me this means sometimes we have to remove the bad out of our life to move onto the good, to grow. Those of us who have been through hell and have overcome it, we become the strongest. We will survive.
