A rubber ball starts with one band of rubber and grows as we add to it.

At first as we add to our ball, it is easy to bounce back, but gradually, as the ball grows, it loses it’s bounce and just becomes a deadweight.

We have to accept that we have no choice but to snap some bands to make our ball lighter, Not an easy task to accept but once we start, slowly but surely our ball will begin to bounce again.
