This is something of an experiment. I made a meme with exactly the same phrase a couple days ago. I made up the line. I am comparing to see if the unattribute version is more or less compelling than the fake attribution to Lincoln.
That's the real challenge. Saying that we hold on to burdens we don't have to is easy. Actually letting them go is a lot harder. I like to think recognizing the once that are self inflicted is a good first step to letting them go.
