Who’s your Morrie in your life? In the memoir Tuesdays With Morrie written by Mitch Albom, the main character Morrie Schwartz shares his famous aphorisms with one of his good friends and past student, Mitch Albom. “Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hold on too long” is one of Morrie’s aphorisms that relates to me and my personal experiences. This aphorism means that we can have grief about something for a while, but eventually we have to move on and live the rest of our lives positively, no matter how hard it is. After my grandfather died, I went through a rough time and never thought that my grief would go away. In the meantime, I realized that he wouldn’t want me to be upset over it forever and would have wanted me to be happy. Not only did I realize that he would want me to be happy, but also that it was time for me to start living my life positively.
